Flying Witch - Halloween School Assemblies

Not many people can use household appliances as their main form of transportation, unless of course you’re a witch. For centuries witches have been gliding around on their yellow stick brooms, tilting their vintage, pointed hats to guide them in the right direction.

Legend says that if you look up into the dark, foggy sky on Halloween night you will be sure to catch a witch or two sailing through the air on the way to cast an evil spell on their next victim.

Ever wondering how these evil enchantresses stay afloat in the gloomy sky? Some might say magical spells or hexes, but like any cool phenomenon, science is the key. For this experiment we will explore the scientifically based concept of friction.
