|The Magic Hooey Stick|
This lesson is a vehicle to address natural illusions and how science can effectively reveal them. The hooey stick is a piece of notched wooden dowling, with a smaller dowling propellor at one end. When it is rubbed with a small stick, the propellor rotates. On the command of hooey, the propellor stops and reverses direction, magically.
