Three 9-year-old triplets in New Jersey are packing some serious brain power.
Victoria, Elizabeth and Katie Wilson are all members of MENSA, an organization for people with very high IQs.
Steven Caponegro, a school principal, says, that "to me, that means they're academically gifted in the areas of language arts, math, their ability levels in the schools. They have that much more potential."
Their parents moved the trio from Florida to their native Florham Park to get them into a better school district.
Mensa says its members range from age 2 to 102.
Membership is based on scoring in the top two per cent on a specific I.Q. Test.
Their mother makes sure the girls remain focused and organized.
Their parents point out the girls are the first African-American triplets to be accepted to MENSA.
