It is important to learn the profession from the inside to see and to touch the working place and this is not an easy task to do by your own.
That’s why we offer our solution: tour routes linked with professions. The tour to the profession is not just unique way for schoolchildren to learn the peculiarities of railwaymen work, but also an increasing of motivation, adopting of new skills and knowledge that help to save time for informed choice of the profession.
And the early vocational guidance is an opportunity for children to see and try different professions. Museum tours acknowledge them with such professions as locomotive driver, conductor, railway engineer, car-building worker etc. and are performed in interactive form of a game.
By solving various tasks, children acknowledge themselves with professions; learn many new facts about each of them. After the end of program each kid can make his/her route using the tablet. The tablet offers several interactive quests in form of a game. By solving the tasks, children will learn the whole world of railway professions.
