The headlines started coming out of Texas early Monday morning that a 9th grader was arrested by Irving County Police. Ahmed Mohamed was apprehended and suspended for three days for bringing his own clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb. It rightfully caused a huge stir as many people questioned whether Ahmed’s race was related to their course of action. President Obama then took to Twitter to invite Ahmed to the White House which is really cool to see. Kudos to you, Mr. President!
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.
