Objective
This lesson can be completed in one or two days. It seeks to introduce and reinforce fundamental concepts in light and energy, as well as expose students to rapidly evolving technology and new engineering challenges. Students will use basic color theory and fluorescent dyes to simulate organic light emitting diode (O-LED) based flexible displays.

Accompanying Documents
1. Supplemental PowerPoint presentation containing
a. Slide on “how we see”
b. Spectrum recording template
c. Display colors for observing
d. Lab questions & answers
e. Follow up assignment
2. Spectroscope template

Safety
1. Nitrile or Latex gloves should be worn
a. Dyes are not toxic by contact, but may stain
2. UV light is harmful to eyes, exposure must be avoided
