Tech Companies Line Up for Clock Whiz, 14 As Well They Should


Police in Irving, Texas, aren’t pressing charges against Ahmed Mohamed, whose homemade clock was mistaken for a bomb, which means the teen whiz is now free to move his mind to other matters. “I’m thinking about transferring schools from MacArthur to any different school,” Ahmed, 14, said at a press conference yesterday to cheers, per USA Today. He adds he wants to attend MIT after high school—a professor has already offered to give him a tour, per MSNBC—but he has quite a few offers he’ll need to consider first: Twitter is advocating for an internship, Google has invited him to its upcoming Science Fair, Mark Zuckerberg has proposed meeting Ahmed at Facebook’s offices, and President Obama has suggested a visit to the White House, per the Independent. “We should inspire more kids like you to like science,” he says. “It’s what makes America great.”
