Ahmed Mohamed receives tech goodies gifted by Microsoft

Ahmed Mohamed is all smiles as he showed off delivering box of tech goodies gifted by Microsoft in his US home on Sunday September 20.

The 14-year-old Sudanese-American Muslim was arrested after bringing a homemade clock into class to show his teacher at MacArthur High School last week.

After arrest and investigation, it was found that Ahmed was simply trying to display his creativity by showing his teacher a homemade digital clock.

Mohamed was hailed as a hero, with other tech leaders like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Box CEO Aaron Levie inviting him to visit their Silicon Valley offices.

US president Barack Obama also invited Ahmed Mohamed to the 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,” Obama tweeted at 5:58 PM on Wednesday September 16, 2015.

Microsoft tweeted on Saturday, ”@aliarsalem @IStandWithAhmed Enjoy…we can’t wait to see what you create with it all!”
