Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old boy from Texas who achieved fame for making a clock and getting arrested and handcuffed for all the wrong reasons, has accepted an invitation to visit Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) to see its world-class schools and universities, and to explore academic opportunities in Doha.

Shortly after Mohamed’s talents were brought into the public spotlight, QF contacted his family and issued an invitation in recognition of his scientific and engineering capabilities that have recently earned him invitations to the White House, MIT and Harvard.

The invitation was issued in the context of QF’s Young Innovators Programme, which strives to attract bright young minds and talent, and encourages gifted youth to reach their full potential.

When the American student visits Doha with his father next month, he will tour QF’s flagship development, Education City, including Qatar Academy, Texas A&M University at Qatar, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar and Qatar Science and Technology Park.

He will also meet various QF officials, faculty and students.
