Amr Mohamed, the Nerdy Teenager I wanted to become
He got more coverage than Mohamed Sanad but still much less than he deserves. In case you haven’t heard: Amr Mohammed won the Youtube Spacelab contest to design an experiment to be implemented in space.
Oh yeah, and he’s 18.
The experiment is basically to see if a jumping spider can catch a prey in a microgravity setting (umm, space).
Even if you don’t care about jumping spiders, let me repeat the last bit: IN SPACE.
My 18 year old self is dead jealous!
I wanted to send him a congrats email and since I may not be the only one -so I looked him up and here are a couple of social media links: Twitter | Facebook | Youtube channel | Google Plus | HuffPo article |
I truly believe we need to connect with the brilliant minds among us and I encourage you to do so!
Also, according to his G+ account he’s going to Stanford. Badass.;)
Good luck Amr!
