Actually in that position, interning for Elon Musk sounds like a great idea, followed by using that $100k to fund living expenses in college and grad school, with the bonus of having a streamlined academic plan and semi-guaranteed dream job when you graduate.

I have a friend at Stanford who got a $100k fellowship for graduate school, and is interning at Tesla this summer. He's doing the exact same thing as you're proposing Asteroid Miner Kid would do, but through the completely traditional route. Seems like a waste if AMK does the same thing as my brilliant but more conventional friend.
