    Stands with Ahmed

    Today students of the Engineering program at West Oakland Middle School went on a field trip to be inspired by the amazing finalists at the Google Science Fair. While we were there we stumbled on one of today's most famous young scientists Ahmed Mohamed. The students were so excited to meet the young man who has made enjoying science cool again. They spent time discussing life, science and taking selfies with the Ahmed. The love was infectious and even CNN Money could feel it. Check out The West Oakland Rising Phoenix on CNN Money.
