A self-described “space nerd,” Jaques had early dreams of becoming an astronaut. Instead, he found his calling as a science teacher and launched many student’s rockets (and their imaginations) from his property, which he called “Danny’s Rocket Ranch.” Jaques has taken more than 500 children to Space Camp, as he believes that attending Space Camp is a life-changing experience, igniting and nurturing children’s self-confidence through team collaboration, problem solving and role playing. That tradition of providing opportunities for children to learn and grow lives on through the company’s affiliation with the Space Camp Scholarship Foundation. Danny Jaques was inducted into the Space Camp Hall of Fame in 2010.
