Electric Car Schools Reach That Classrooms Can’t

spends more dollars per than any developed country Switzerland while earning, at mediocre results. A recent card from the OCED American 15-year-olds were among 34 countries in math, and ranked average in science and Our national response, embodied by laws such as the No Child Behind Act, has been to teaching standards, increase and expand the curriculum.

But a crowd of new initiatives are looking for other, innovative ways. One unlikely to success is building hybrid cars, and it’s proven so that a school based around EV engineering is going to soon in Philadelphia.

Simon Hauger. a Philadelphia-born and engineer, made a career 14 years that landed him in one of his toughest schools: West High School. A humbling year teaching math, and engineering to inner-city students his eyes to the fact that the system—tests, memorization, and abstract solving—that he was trained in was never to reach many of his own students. He something practical, like a

School should be about solving real problems, Hauger during a 2010 given at the PopTech conference in Maine. I was amazed. These were brilliant, smarter engineers at GE. But when we sat in classroom were ready to pull eyeballs out.

Stick in the shop, and they were to solve very complex

That started Hauger and his school class on an improbable culminating in EV race victories MIT, Cornell, and multi-million-dollar Hauger’s Hybrid X Team’s vehicle, an electric go-kart, was during an after-school program.

Now Hauger, who drives a super biodiesel Volkswagen Jetta by the team, is starting a school on those same principles. The Workshop is a privately funded that he hopes will a charter school or part of the School District by 2013. The is teaching 29 seniors from Philadelphia high schools by the real-world problems of energy and climate change. Two of their have been reducing school’s energy profile and school bus route efficiency .

Hauger’s vision is not unique. teachers, like Eric whose ideas are chronicled in the Electric Dreams . teamed up shop teacher Harold to turn a team of students in a North Carolina high into the region’s fastest electric who beat out much better schools in their rebuilt Ford Escort called In shop, students struggling to standardized tests mastered involving electrical wiring, longevity, welding, and aerodynamics.

That same phenomenon is got Hauger moving. This of multiple intelligences really to come to life for me, he says. One of the about project-based education is people who support that support basic skills. quite to the contrary. We’ve amazing basic skills public speaking. deep solving, and what I consider skills.

It’s really finding what kids’ and passions are, and tapping that.
