Join a Team
Even if you are working alone, you need to be on a team. Being on a team, even a team by yourself, gives you student privileges that allow you to complete your work.
Use your name and school email when signing up for the account.
Make sure to select the appropriate information from the drop-down menus. If you add yourself to the wrong team, just click "Leave my team" and try again.
Team tags follow this format: School-InstructorLastName-T#S#G#. For example, if you are attending Cal Poly in Dr. Jon Doe's class, in Fall 2018, assigned to section 4, group 7, your team tag will be: CPSU-DOE-F18S4G7. Your instructor will assign you a group number. You'll need to include this team tag in the subject line of your emails to iFixit, so jot it down or copy it from your profile for later use.
So, why is this project so important? By teaching people how to fix their own stuff, you are helping keep devices out of landfills and end the e-waste crisis! To learn more, check out the video below, as well as the Why We Do What We Do page and iFixit.com/right-to-repair.
