Simon Hauger is a Philadelphia-based former engineer turned inner-city high school math and science teacher with an impressive new school model that focuses on teaching engineering through hands-on construction. Simon Hauger is the co-founder of The Workshop School, where the school days are organized around projects instead of periods and sees the students build things rather than sit in lecture.
