Student Arrested After Showing Homemade Clock to Teacher
A Muslim teen named Ahmed Mohammed who created a clock and showed it to his teachers was arrested. The strange incident took place in Texas. Going into detail…
A 14-year-old studying at a high school in Irvin, Texas who was passionate about Engineering made a clock out of pencil case. Anxious to show his work to his teachers, Ahmed took his homemade clock to school. To his surprise, on seeing his clock, the teachers got him arrested instead of praising him. Why? The teachers mistook the clockj for a bomb! “I built a clock to impress my teacher but when I showed it to her, she thought it was a threat to her,” Ahmed told reporters Wednesday. “It was really sad that she took the wrong impression of it,” said Ahmed. A surprise to the Muslim schoolboy is an invitation from the US President Barack Obama to visit White House.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.
