"I'm honored to be part of the renowned GCAA faculty and am committed to helping our school stand out as one of the region's top for STEAM education. I've observed that students learn most when they create the meaning for themselves. The GCAA Makerspace is a cutting-edge opportunity for students to create authentic products that showcase their learning. I look forward to meeting the families of GCAA and having you to our new space!" Email link: andrew.goodin@grandcenterartsacademy.org
