Our group have found that PE is like never used, except by Russia, as no one ever goes for Sience win (except Russia).

So we changed it to 3/5/6.
Have anyone tired smthing similiar?

If you want to encourage Public Education, I would go for 2/5/8- the cost of the first stage is prohibitive (though 2/5/8 might be too powerful). I agree it's not used as often as EftA or MIC, neither is Infrastructure.

I agree that 3 investments is prohibitive.
After some playtesting (~10 games 3-4 players, we came up with a following variant:

2/4/6. Tech you get is capped II/III/IV level. So that you can't get a lvl III tech with your 2nd invest, nor fly to space with 6th.

What do you think? In our metagame it works fine, but we are a small group.

We are also trying a new Infrastucture:
1/2/3. One of your cities produces 2/4/6 hammers each turn. (Can choose new one every turn).
