Columbus New Tech to host exhibit to help parents spot risky behavior

Columbus New Tech Signature Academy will be hosting a traveling exhibit meant to help parents recognize potential warning signs in their children’s lives. “Hidden in Plain Sight” is an interactive display designed to help parents of teens recognize unfamiliar hazards that are often in plain sight.

By walking through a makeshift child’s bedroom, parents learn to identify objects that could provide critical insights about risky behavior. Amidst the clutter, organizers say are more than 100 items that can actually be signals that a young person could be involved in harmful or illegal activity.

“Hidden in Plain Sight” will be on display at Columbus New Tech located at 2205 25th Street on September 4th at 5:30 p.m. The exhibit is open to adults only. There is no charge to attend.
