Any advice for new McNair Scholars?

Take the leap. Nothing's better than doing what scares you, what could fail, and could potentially embarrass you. 

Addtional Information

I'm figuring out how to synthesize nanomaterials that can have applications in electronics and computation, thermoelectricity, and as sensitive sensors; I do my research mostly because it's very interesting. My adviser is Prof. Shixiong Zhang at the Physics Department.
