The Healthy 2 B Me Wellness Camp, designed for children ages 7-10 and in grades 2-5, teaches aspects of wellness that include nutrition, cooking and exercise.
The annual camp, sponsored by the University of Arizona's Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, is conducted at the UA Recreation Center in three one-week sessions. Students from the college work as camp counselors, giving them the real-world experience that is the focus of the UA's 100% Engagement initiative.
The first of five instruments that will map and analyze asteroid Bennu as part of the UA-led OSIRIS-REx mission has arrived at the Lockheed Martin Space Systems facility and awaits integration into the spacecraft structure.
Every year about the middle of April, depending on the temperature in southern Arizona, eggs begin to hatch on mesquite trees and small, strange, blue bugs appear in large numbers. People don't notice these tiny insects until sometime in May, when they appear as inch-long, red- and white-banded insects with antennae that have an enlarged segment toward the tip.
These odd-looking beasts are giant mesquite bug nymphs, Thasus neocalifornicus.
