CHAMPAIGN -- High-schoolers at Centennial learned from a business leader instead of a book Thursday. In Classroom Connection, students were educated by Steven Wolfram, PhD. He's CEO of a major software company.

Wolfram spoke with students about his experiences as an entrepreneur. His talk was part of a district-wide push to connect students with business leaders. They hope to get students excited about future careers.

At just 12-years old, Wolfram wrote a dictionary on physics. Then at 13, he wrote three books on particle physics.
