"Liquid Crystals" is a group of hands-on activities and experiments developed at UW-MRSEC that explore how liquid crystals change color as their temperature changes. There are instructions for preparing liquid crystal mixtures, a thermometer and a pixel. There is also background information about how liquid crystals work. Teacher's guides, transparencies and student worksheets are included for the activities.
