For their final task, the group went through a test of the constellations, an extreme set of math questions, a rigorous spelling bee and a unique quiz entitled 'The Cortex,' a specially formulated exam that put all their smartness to the test. Neil Patrick Harris, the host of the show said, "I was completely awe-struck and inspired by these amazing kids. I knew we would be dealing with bright, ambitious youngsters when we began casting, but they exceeded all my expectations. Not only are they off-the-charts smart, but they are incredibly well-rounded and sweet. Meeting these kids filled me with hope for the future."
Michi, 11, is already doing research at a cancer immunotherapy company, where she is the youngest intern while Ugochi, also 11, is brilliant at multiplication. Jackson, the oldest in the group is a baseball and basketball fan. He has a thorough knowledge of sports stats, facts and history and has a collection of more than 1,000 baseball cards.
