— -- Ahmed Mohamed got VIP treatment at the Google Science Fair where the Texas teen happily posed with Sergey Brin.

The Texas high school freshman wasn't an entrant at the science fair over the weekend but took time to mingle with finalists at the annual event held on Google's Mountain View, California, campus.

Mohamed, a freshman at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, was taken into police custody last week when his homemade digital clock was mistaken for a bomb by school officials and police. Since the incident, Mohamed has been fielding a slew of invitations from some of the biggest names in the tech world.

Mark Zuckerberg invited the teen to stop by Facebook. He's also fielded offers from some of tech's top companies who are eager to have the teen join them for an internship.

Perhaps his biggest invitation of all though: The White House. Mohamed also plans to take President Obama up on his offer of a meeting next month.
