360Science™: Liquid Crystals: The Fourth State of Matter


In this experiment students will investigate liquid crystals and observe how different ratios of the same chemicals can produce liquid crystals with sensitivity over different temperature ranges. They will examine their assigned mixture with light and dark backgrounds to see how the color of the crystals change. They will also observe how the colors change under white light while being heated.
