Vaping has become a huge trend lately, especially among young people, causing concern among parents and health professionals. That's why one QCA school is trying to put an end to the habit through an unconventional method.

WQAD reports Orion High School in Orion, Illinois (just pass Coal Valley) has installed a vape detector called FlySense in their bathrooms.

The device can also be used to detect loud noises, and administrators hope this added feature will help students stay safe.

The school has been utilizing the FlySense detectors for around a year with much success. The sensor used to go off multiple times a day, but these days, it averages about three times a week.

Community donations helped fund the detectors, which run about $800 a piece.
