4-year-old says YouTube is the reason he is so advanced
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -
“Mercury is the closest planet to the sun and second hottest,” says Jace.
The things the 4-year-old knows about the solar system is out of this world.
Venus is the second planet from the sun and the 6th largest planet and it’s almost the same size like Earth,” says Jace.
He knows facts and the names of all the planets including dwarf planets and of course the giant star we revolve around.
“The sun is the biggest and it’s made of hydrogen and helium gas,” says Jace.
Learning about the world he lives in isn’t just a phase.
Now that he knows about the planets lightyears away, he’s focusing on the one that he tells me is the only planet with organic life.
“Earth has seven continents and five oceans. New Mexico capital is Santa Fe,” says Jase.
Jase has learned the capitols of all 50 U.S states.
He’s reading at a fourth-grade level, writes letters to friends and family, and he can even recite the alphabet backward.
“A lot of people ask me what do you do and how and how are you doing everything and I just tell them that’s all Jase what we do is we just encourage and support him,” says Jace’s mom Andrea Thompson.
His parents turned his bedroom into the solar system, and they watched the recent rocket launch as a family.
Jase credits songs and videos on YouTube for his advanced knowledge specifically the Kids Learning.
He’s always into videos and music and songs so that’s how he’s learning pretty much everything,” says Andrea.
His 1-year-old sister Zoey is following right behind.
She can already identify colors, letters, numbers, and of course planets.
Although he has all the time in the universe to figure it out Jase says when he grows up, he wants to be a policeman.
