Leidos Event


Wed, May 4th, 2022 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Leidos - 2985 Scott Street, Vista, CA, 92081

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 members to STEAM 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 have the chance to become a TSA officer, while you operate a ProVison full body scan, a B220 Explosives detector, and a Reveal® Explosives Detection System (EDS) just like those operated by TSA, scanning airport luggage and capturing bad guys. You will then become a Customs Agent and learn the parts of the M6500 X-ray scanning vehicle and watch it deploy before you head south of the border to the Plaza VACIS® scanning system.
