Of “Bomb Clocks,” Engineers and the $70 Million High School Football Stadium
Some 19.6 miles from the Texas school where a smart 14-year-old kid with a dream of being an engineer was arrested the other day, a high school is building a $20 million stadium for its football players.
And 30 miles in the other direction, stands a $60 million high school football stadium.
The smart money says that if the kid, Ahmed Mohamed, could juke and run a quick slant pattern, he would have gotten an A+ just for being able to tell time.
But that’s all speculative.
What we do know is that he was so smart that he was able to build an electronic clock at home, and so proud that he brought it in to school.
