Alec- The Hardest Part of Research

Hello everyone, its Alec.

Over this summer I have learned a lot about research: first of all, it is hard and almost never goes right. In my experiments, I found there was aways something new I would need which I hadn't anticipated before. Things would also go wrong, my first few tests were plagued by electrical leaks which I have now corrected. Anyways, I have learned to do the best I can even if it isn't exactly what you planned.

My mentor has been amazing through all this, mainly by connecting me with knowledgeable people in the field I am working in have have taught me a lot. She has also taught me a lot about science and organizing a project.

Well, anyways, I am looking forward to the big day, less than 2 weeks away now.
