I really love this experiment. When I was in High School I was fortunate to be able to audit some University classes for which there wasn't an equivalent in my school district (numerical analysis and fortran programming). That allowed me to 'bank' time which would have nominally been wasted waiting to reach 'college age' or 'post HS diploma'. This is much more common today and my kids have all benefited from it.
This experiement is sort of the next step. If we can combine that with free access to a syllabus of seminal papers (vs paying $36 each from some Journal publisher) it will allow a lot of people more time to do great things.
