It is very pleasant that with each edition of our journal we see an increasing number of countries represented by contributors as well as an expanding range of topics covered in scientific articles. Currently, the journal mostly present articles about the educational standards and modern teaching-learning technologies in corresponding countries. But how about the development of modern educational content in natural sciences? It has been almost 40 years since my class graduated from the secondary school, but the science curriculum in schools and higher educational establishments hasn’t changed much, especially with regard to physics. Metaphorically speaking, the content of sciences could be compared to the content of a wardrobe containing the clothes of our grandparents and our parents, as well as our own contemporary clothing items which we traditionally try to save until we have worn down the older clothes. In most cases the final result is that there is no time left for the contemporary. The question is whether science students will have time to cover the contemporary developments while studying all the theories and laws of the past centuries.
