Ahmed Mohamed got in big trouble for bringing a homemade clock to school. Ignorance is all around us on this one! While the teacher did the right thing to notify the authorities in the spirit of protecting our kids, the reality is that the confusion between a clock and a bomb is truly symbolic of our STEM challenge. We are out of time!
BTW – I’m collaborating with my good friend Bob Smith to build a larger scale GPS Arduino-based clock to have on display in the Makers Lab.
