The Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth (SMPY) is the longest-running study of highly intelligent children that exists. It has for 45 years tracked the careers and accomplishments of some 5,000 individuals, many of whom have gone on to become highachieving scientists. The study’s ever-growing data set has generated more than 400 papers and several books, and provided key insights into how to spot and develop talent in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and beyond.

Notable participants in the study are Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey Brin, and Lady Gaga. (Yes, you read that right. All three were chosen as teenagers because of their extraordinary mathematical abilities.)
