These STEM-focused lessons have our kids studying slime, channeling their inner-inventors and getting out of their seats in an active, hands-on, all-day learning setting. In addition to saving the world as self-made superheroes, they’ll be engaged in in-depth lessons including Lost Treasure where they’ll learn about volcanoes, create their own protective gear and complete challenges to find a hidden treasure, all while learning how to write their very own adventure stories. They’ll also manage their own farms and perform DNA experiments with assistance from a programmable robot that will teach them fundamental coding techniques and the basics of running a business.

This interactive week of learning builds on last week’s success at swim camp with hundreds of IPS students conquering their fears and learning new life skills.

Also this week, all of our I PROMISE students are invited to complete their student-athlete physicals, courtesy of our partners at Crystal Clinic. This vital resource will help students and families check in on their current health and identify any abnormalities as we work to keep our kids happy, healthy and on the path to incredible futures.

Their unparalleled impact on LeBron’s kids – from mentoring in the classroom to cheering, encouraging and dancing with them daily outside of it – has changed all of our lives for the better. They’ve also left their mark on IPS with the building of The Embassy and on many All Star cities, creating a legacy of their own we know will continue as they pursue many amazing things ahead.

Our student inventors, our active partners and our 330 Ambassadors make us proud to say…

WE ARE FAMILY!
