Piaget was something of a child prodigy, and his scientific genius showed up at a very early age. His first scientific publication, a journal article on the behavior of albino sparrows, occurred at the tender age of 11. While in high school, he became a leading expert on the behavior of mollusks and was offered the job as curator of a natural history museum. He turned that job down and instead went to college, where he earned a Ph.D. in natural science.
