CNN is reporting that Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old boy who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school, has switched schools. He is leaving MacArthur High School and he and his parents are choosing another school where, we assume, he won’t be arrested for curiosity.
Ahmed gained Internet fame two days ago when school officials called the police when he brought a homemade clock to school. Officials thought the clock, encased in a handsome metal case, looked like a bomb. Ahmed said he was interrogated at school by police.
Ahmed said he was scared at first but now he is happy. In fact, President Obama invited him to the White House and multiple colleges and Valley notables – including Mark Zuckerberg – have offered their support. It’s unclear what he’s building next, but I can’t imagine he’ll have trouble finding cool parts.
