The main goal of this year’s test is to connect abstract scientific information with students’ daily lives as well as emphasise the importance of engineering concepts in modern life. It is also critical to comprehend the historical trajectory of this way of life as well as the critical role played in this process by the invention of rudimentary machines. The aforementioned is intended to be accomplished by emphasising the connections between abstract scientific notions such as “force”, “motion”, “friction”, and “pressure” and the operating principles of simple devices and people’s desire to make their lives easier.

Mediterranean: source of life and culture| Junior High School

The Mediterranean has an estimated population of 450 million people, which is expected to increase to 520 million by 2025, with 150 of them located in or near coastal areas. Furthermore, the Mediterranean is a major tourist destination, with an estimated 200 million visits each year.

Scientists have identified the Mediterranean region as a climate change hotspot. Marine pollution, wildfires, high temperatures, and extreme weather events pose a hazard to parts of southern Europe, western Asia, and northern Africa.
