Colin Carlson, a child prodigy who at 13 is a double major (with a 3.9 grade point average) in ecology and evolutionary biology and environmental studies at the University of Connecticut, has filed an age bias complaint with the U.S. Education Department after being turned away from a field ecology class that includes a three-week trip to South Africa, ABC News reported. Carlson's complaint says that the professor said that he was too young for the trip, even though his mother volunteered to accompany him (at her own expense). UConn officials declined to discuss the case while it is being considered by the department's Office for Civil Rights.
