Nourish brilliant minds
Establish an academic scholarship for Ahmed Mohamed & a fund to support teens like him
Ahmed Mohamed, 14, an avid inventor and robotics enthusiast, brought a home made clock to school to impress his engineering teacher. Instead of receiving praise, Ahmed was escorted out in handcuffs after school officials alerted the police of a suspicious device they thought looked like a bomb.
The funds will be used to help Ahmed further his education and to help other curious students like him interested in STEM fields have access to MakerSpaces where they can use high tech equipment like 3D Printers, CNC Machines, and all sorts of other cool stuff.
Young Curious Minds are Not a Threat
We cannot undo the the fear and frustration Ahmed felt when being interrogated by police and walking out in handcuffs. This moment will forever impact his life. But let’s show him that he is not alone and we support his love for engineering and inventing. At a time when our nation lags behind the world in math and sciences, these funds will help him continue his education and reach his potential.
Young curious minds are not a threat. As a nation, let’s support our youth in increasing their competitiveness in science and technology development because this is what will make out country strong.
Where the Funds Will Go
- 50% of the funds will be used for a scholarship for Ahmed
- 50% will be used as a one year gift memberships at MakerSpaces for promising young kids
