Intel has hired the youngest intern in the company’s long history, 16-year-old Joe Hudy.
Intel says Hudy will be working in its New Devices Group, which develops all sorts of gadgets. Hudy will join the intern programme this summer.
Hudy has been in the news before. Last year he attended the White House Science Fair and met US President Barack Obama. At the fair he demonstrated a homemade marshmallow cannon, which amused the president, although the First Lady would probably prefer an organic vegetable cannon.
Hudy is no stranger to electronics, either. He makes Arduino boards and he designed and built a solar powered computer for another science fair. Brilliant.org considers him one of the ten smartest kids in the world.
