Как стать участником конкурса ThinkQuest? - задают нам этот вопрос школьники. Ярослав Быховский написал маленькую инструкция специально для этих пытливых учащихся:

1 шаг: Зайти на страницу My ThinkQuest.

2 шаг: Зарегистрироваться (получить логин и пароль)

  • заполнить он-лайновую форму, для этого надо найти внизу страницы следующие слова: Join My ThinkQuest Now: To join My ThinkQuest, simply fill out our online form. Once you're done, you can come back to this page to login.
3-12 шаги: заполнить форму участника конкурса ThinkQuest Internet Challenge и организовать свою команду:
  1. Login to My ThinkQuest.
  2. From the main screen choose "ThinkQuest Internet Challenge."
  3. On the next page you will see the rules regarding student membership. If you agree to abide by them, click on "Join Internet Challenge as a Student."
  4. This will take you to a "Participant Profile" form. In this profile, select languages, skills and other interests. This information will be used in our database so that other students can search for you based on these criteria. Once you are done, click on "Save."
  5. On the next page you can either go back and edit your newly created profile or you can click on "Complete Consent Form." Let's assume that you click on the Consent Form link. The Parent/Guardian consent form should now be displayed. At this point you should either have a parent/guardian complete the form online, or you can print the form to have them send it to ThinkQuest. Let's assume that the form is completed, they choose "I Agree" and then click on "Save."
  6. On the next page, choose "Select Your School." Our database will try to find a possible matches for you. If you find your school, you can click on it's name and it will be added. If you do not find your school, you should click on the "Add" button to add your school to our database.
  7. Now you can choose either "Participant Search" or "Create A Team." Participant Search allows you to specify criteria and find other students who match that criteria. When you get the results you can either click on the username and see that student's profile or you can click on Send Message to send a My ThinkQuest message to that student.
  8. If you already know some participants and are planning to form a team, only one of you should complete this step. The idea is that one of you will create the team and then invite others to join it. In the middle screen you are asked to complete the following information: Category, Title, Proposal, and Web Server account type. The Proposal should describe what your entry will be about. Once you have completed this information, click on "Create".
  9. The Middle screen will now show a table with information on your new team. From this page you can either click on the Team Number to change information such as Title, Description, etc., or "Edit" under MEMBERS. This will take you to a page where you can invite students and coaches to join your team. To do this, you should type in the persons My ThinkQuest username and click on "Create Invitation." The next time that the person logs in they will get your invitation as a My ThinkQuest message and if they accept it, they will automatically be added to your team.
  10. Once all of your team information is complete, the STATUS column in the center screen will read "Ready to Submit." Click on this link and then on the Submit button. Your team's information will be screened within two weeks and once screened, all members will receive approval notification via e-mail. After your team has been approved, your team's web server account will be created and team members will receive another message with login, password and instructions to reach the server".
