In his spare time, he travels to Maine and is a football booster in his hometown.  Dan has developed several programs to allow students to learn robotics all across New Hampshire.

Robotics is an amazing way to introduce children to engineering. Robotics not only provides key STEM skills, but it also is a great way to help develop critical life skills such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, and much more. The programs designed by NH LEGO League and RIZE Robotics focus on the true value of robotics, which are partnership and perseverance. LEGOMAN Dan teaches the value that failure is critical when it drives us to try again and again until we succeed. 

LEGOMAN Dan joined the World Academy community in 2014.
