To register for Technovation Girls, all students must have their parent/guardian give consent officially to compete in Technovation. Consent to participate is required, while media consent is optional.
If your parent has an email address/internet access:
When you sign-up for a student account on our platform, you will need to provide your parent/guardian's name and email address.
Your parent/guardian will receive an email from Technovation; they should click the "Sign The Forms" button:
Parents should click on the button in the message, they should NOT reply to the email directly.
When the parent clicks the button, they will be brought to the parental consent form on the Technovation platform.
The first page of the form is the Consent to Participate
Your parent should type their name at the bottom of the form, and click the "I agree" button:
The second page of the form is the Media Consent
Your parent will have two options to choose from. After they select an option, they should type their name at the bottom of the form, and click the "Submit" button
*Please note, media consent is optional. Not granting permission will not effect a student's participation in Technovation Girls.
Your parent will then receive a signed copy of their consent form via email.
My parent did not receive the consent email! What should I do?
From the student dashboard, click "Resend consent email", to have the message resent:
To ensure that your parent receives the email:
- Check that your parent's email address is entered correctly on your student profile:
- Ask your parent to check their email Spam and trash folders, in case the message was caught by a filter.
- Ensure that your parent has added firstname.lastname@example.org to their email contact list.
If your parent/guardian does NOT have an email address/internet access:
Download a pre-filled consent form, by clicking the "permission" link from your student dashboard, have your parent/guardian sign it, and send a photo/scanned copy to email@example.com.
Please use the email subject line “Technovation Girls parental consent form: Student Name".
*Please note, if your parent wants to give media consent, please have them also fill out and send in the media consent form. Otherwise, if they aren't interested in giving media consent, they do not have to fill out the media consent form.
If you cannot email your signed form, please ask your Mentor, teacher or Chapter Ambassador if they can send the signed form on your behalf.
Consent filed via this option will take at least 48 hours to appear on the student's account.
I'm an educator/Mentor and I have more than five consent forms to submit on behalf of my students! What should I do?
When possible, please ask students to download the pre-filled consent forms from their student dashboard, and have their parents sign it.
You may then email each photo/scanned copy to firstname.lastname@example.org; please use the email subject line “Technovation Girls parental consent form: Student Name".
Depending on the number of consent forms submitted, this option will take at least 72 hours to appear on the student's account.
