Kindergartner Declan Lopez, a young girl from New Jersey, is proving genius comes in all ages.

The 6-year-old member of Mensa, a prestigious society reserved for the brightest minds, boasts an impressive IQ level of 138., which is on par with the legendary physicist, Albert Einstein himself.

Einstein never took an IQ score test. However, based on his historical records, academics have estimated his score to be around 160. Declan’s IQ of 138, is right at genius level, USA Today reported. The highest average score for people under 64 years of age is 109. Declan was recently been integrated into the Mensa society.

Mensa is a global high-IQ society and non-profit organization open to people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized, supervised IQ or other approved intelligence test. American Mensa has more than 50,000 members, and according to the group, its Young Mensans is its fastest-growing segments.

“I’m interested in arts, science, math, and geography,” Declan enthusiastically shared, according to ABC News.

What sets Declan apart is her extraordinary reading ability, which is already at a third or fourth-grade level. She attends school in Dover, New Jersey. According to her mother, Meachel Lopez, her school has teachers who are “amazing and supportive.”

“Her current school offers her a once-a-week coding game to attempt to provide her with some added stimulation as they currently do not offer a gifted program until the third grade,” Lopez told USA Today.

“My favorite thing to learn is a force in motion,” revealed Declan, who has a little bother, Maddox.

Declan’s parents began noticing her exceptional intelligence when she was just 18 months old.

“We were on a trip in the airport, and she just started to count in Mandarin,” recalled Meachel Lopez told ABC affiliate WPVI-TV. While her parents nurture her intellect, they said they also want her to enjoy her childhood.

“I want her to laugh and joke and make mistakes and do things that 6-year-olds do,” her mother said.
