Fun with X-Rays!

We had a great time having fun with x-rays this last weekend. As advertised, we offered free Halloween x-ray inspection in our facility in San Marcos, CA. The main purpose of this activity was to show kids (and their parents) the joy and beauty of x-ray inspection. Dozens of kids were able to see, for the first time, x-rays in action! If one of the them decides to follow a STEM career because of this experience – mission accomplished!

Of course candy wasn’t the only thing we x-rayed, after all it was time to experiment. Several toys were inspected in the process, including Thomas the train, BB8, and Hot Wheels cars, and much more. Check out some of the images we got. We look forward to another Halloween x-ray inspection session next year!
