The article presents a case study of field geological training for schoolchildren within the framework of occupational guidance programs implemented on the basis of the Interuniversity Academic Center of Mining and Geological Profession Navigation of the RAS State Geological Museum with the support of the Academy of Mining Sciences. Field training is aimed at the formation of the schoolchildren’s interest to mining and geological professions and research areas. In the practical aspect it enables children to make their own collections of rocks, minerals and fossils; to learn how to make records in a consistent manner and to collect samples and materials, and to develop skills of working in field conditions, to choose their research areas for the future. Another important aspect of the described measures is the development of the general scope of interests of the young people providing them with the knowledge on the history and culture of the attended regions
