X-ray Vision Isn’t Just for Superman: The Leidos® Experience

Tue, Mar 05 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

As a leading supplier of security scanning equipment to the Department of Homeland Security and customs organizations around the world, Leidos is proud to open our doors and introduce San Diego’s kids, parents, teachers, industry leaders and community member to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) as part of the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering.

Participants of this event will tour the Leidos manufacturing floor at our Vista, California headquarters, where you will have the opportunity to visit four of our educational stations. In these stations, you will be transformed into a health physicist as you learn general radiation theory and discover how to operate instruments to detect radiation. You will have the chance to become a TSA officer, while you operate a Reveal® Explosives Detection System (EDS) just like those operated by TSA, scanning airport luggage and capturing bad guys. You will get to act like an engineer as we provide a start-to-finish demonstration of computer-aided design (CAD) from model to production. And you’ll get to gear up for the bomb squad as you work the imaging equipment to check suspicious bags.

This event will be hosted at the Leidos facility at 2985 Scott Street, Vista, CA, 92081. Every adult accompanying a student must be a US citizen and have a valid form of identification at sign-in the night of the event.

We look forward to seeing you soon here at Leidos.
