How to Register

Sci-Fi’s scheduling platform has changed! A primary contact will be tasked with filling out a google form such as in previous years. Before filling out the form, the primary contact must know how many workshops their school wants and which days will not work for their school. After filling out the form, a fillable schedule will be sent to the primary contact that will be formatted like the following image:

fillable schedule

 This schedule can either be filled out by a primary contact, or forwarded to the rest of the school so that each teacher is able to pick the time slot that works the best for them! Teachers will not be able to change the dates or preformatted times as those will be provided ahead of time. 

The final filled out form will format itself to look similar to the following: 

filled schedule
