    We are using the PET curriculum in PHYS 1410 Elementary Physics (conceptual physics). "Physics and Everyday Thinking" was selected for implementation to meet the needs of elementary education majors at a nearby university who are required to take physics. An informal survey of our students revealed a desire for an alternative to the large lecture classes and "disconnected" labs. (However, students other than pre-service teachers are not excluded.)
    This is the seventh year of the PETC-project at LSC-North Harris. One hundred and seventy-four students aspiring to teach elementary students have taken the course and we hope many more will in the coming semesters!
