MARE - Caleb is a curious, serious and inquisitive boy. At an early age, Caleb took an interest in science and learned by taking objects apart and rebuilding them. He enjoys learning about electricity, circuits, and how things work. 

Conversations with adults rather than with his peers come easier for Caleb, especially when he has the opportunity to talk about his passions of science, robotics, and carpentry. 

Caleb's social skills are awkward. He can antagonize his peers with his serious but curious manner and they may find him difficult to engage with. Happiest when playing outside, Caleb is not athletic nor sports-oriented. He also enjoys drawing and is an excellent artist.
