Here’s What Ahmed Mohamed Has Been Up To Since His Clock Arrest

Time has flown since President Barack Obama took an interest in one very cool clock and its now-famous inventor, 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed.

The visit comes roughly one month after the teenage science wiz was arrested at his Texas high school for bringing in a homemade digital clock that his teacher mistook for a bomb.
