Homeschooler Earns Bachelor’s in Web Technologies and He’s Only 13

13-year-old Kelton Kostis, a homeschooler from Canada, has graduated from Bellevue University with a Bachelor of Science in Web Technologies.

Kelton started attending college when he was 9 and it only took him 2-1/2 years to complete his degree with a 3.93 GPA.

Kelton’s parents realized he was advanced for his age when he started reading medical books in his spare time at the age of 8.

Unfortunately, Kelton doesn’t qualify for scholarships because he lives in Canada and is being schooled online in the U.S. This has left him with $20,000 in student loans.

Despite this, he intends to earn a Master’s in Computer Information Systems and eventually a Ph.D.

A group of homeschoolers from New South Wales, Australia spent a day picking up trash from their local beach.

An article detailing the project in Bega District News was written by one of the homeschoolers, 11-year-old Yemaya Oates.

She wrote, “We found bottles and cans that could have been more than 10 years old. Some of the bottles were an old shape. Lots of them were very faded.”

Oates wrote they were “cleaning up the environment, preventing animals from dying and making it a better place.”

Homeschool Rocket Team Invited to NASA Student Launch Initiative

With their 12th place finish at the Team America Rocketry Challenge Final Fly-off in Washington D.C., the St. Monica Homeschool Student Rocketeers earned an invitation to the NASA Student Launch Initiative.

The team consists of three girls and five boys in middle and high school and was started by Dan Daniels when his oldest son, Justin, expressed an interest in amateur rocketry.

Although Dan and the kids had no experience with rocketry they designed, tested, and built their own 3-D printed rocket for the competition.

Working as a team was the toughest challenge and greatest lesson for the students and it propelled them to their 12th place finish.
