19 November 2013 Last updated at 01:18 GMT

In less than three years, 13-year-old Quin Etnyre learned to programme electronics, created his own company, and began teaching MIT graduates in his spare time.

Fuelled by a love of electronics and education, Quin developed starter kits to help children dive into the world of electronic programming.

Now, this whiz-kid has plans to revolutionise the education system, integrating electronics into everyday classes.

Produced by Charly Jaffe and Tasbeh Herwees; filmed by Travis Peterson; edited by Bill McKenna
