ABSTRACT
In the context of the interdisciplinary nature of tourism, its meaning is continually
changing in terms of management and marketing, with their methodological apparatus, which is widely used to define that. As the psychologists with its enriched approach the management with knowledge of creativity, it also has the potential to enrich the research in tourism. Management functions, applicable in tourism, have professional and logical level, although intuitive approach dominates in this sector, because they face an unstable and unpredictable environment. We would like to show on our case, that the more important role play with the way of thinking and work, as well as creative abilities of the individual, which can be real-time in the project implementation, the resulting rendering intent is not in any way dependent on the degree of the saturation of the project budget. Although project financing allows easy access for our goals, mostly through purchases of finished products and equipment, but that does not mean to achieve genuine outcomes in any way, as a result of creative activity. The proposed modeling material allows extending the original scope of the modeling system toward the other applications, such as science museums, science centers, as well as designing of the physical models for the needs of geoparks.
