I used the PLATO Earth&Space science program to supplement the science program that was a part of our homeschool curriculum for my 6th grader. All of the topics in the homeschool curriculum were covered by the PLATO program. The PLATO program went much deeper though. The PLATO program is great. It engages the learner with good graphics and audio presentation. It gives students the option to repeat small sections or to go deeper on one part of a topic or skip part with a click of the mouse.The program offers application activities that have the ...(more)

We bought both the life science and physical science for my children. Both we wonderful programs that exceeded what we expected. I would say if you are looking at either of these programs they are worth it.
M. Fletcher, Co-op Member
This is an exceptional program. My son used this for physical science and air/space 2 years ago. On standardized testing he has scored consistantly above the 80th percentile for the past two years. However, last year we used a book biology only with a dissection lab and on this year's testing he scored about the 50th percentile for that information. I deduce that PLATO presented the information in a more meaningful and memorable manner.
I must say that the PLATO experience was also more pleasant than the book only. I am looking forward to p...(more)

I purchased the whole complement of Plato and my daughter uses it to round out the science material from her textbook. I like the fact that this system could stand alone on its own merits. If one chose not to purchase a textbook and workbook, your student could learn science just as easily by this method, and visiting the libary to check out books on the subject in particular. I like the fact that my daughter can take a quiz and determine for herself, if she really understands the material. I think it is an excellent product and hope that it is...(more)

The Earth/Space science exceeded our expectations. It was very well done with lots of interactive learning and flash animation. The testing was thorough and calculates the score upon submission. I have already recommended it to a friend.
T. Nokes, Co-op Member
My boys ages 9 and 12 love PLATO Science. Science textbooks tend to be boring but the animated science on PLATO is really interesting and they love the interactive features. I plan to keep using it and have told many of my homeschooling friends about this program.
Delores Wood, Co-op Member
I am a curriculum junkie, so I've taken a look at a lot of science curricula. Plato has the best coverage of middle school science topics I've seen, and the kids love it. I can't recommend it highly enough. We can't wait to try the high school courses by Plato!
Amy T-B, Co-op Member
PLATO Science courses are amazing! In a world that has become increasingly "simplified" regarding education, PLATO provides a rigorous, informative level of science education that is, (wait) FUN!!! I have always written my own curriculum for our 3 children, with a focus on science because I have a science background (microbiology) and find most products too ridiculously simple, even for children. Due to my youngest child's struggle with dyslexia and my search for more visual learning, I decided to try one of PLATO's courses: Middle School Ea...(more)

The Plato Earth Science has been a joy to use. My 12yr old reluctant learner and I enjoy the heavy use of visuals. I am also using it as a method to teach him note taking skills. He has never learned this crucial skill. So, I preview the material and create an outline with simple key points for him to fill in. I also list the screen number the information can be found on. That way he can back up and fill in anything he misses. I find computer learning allows him to take ownership of his education more so than other styles of learning because h...(more)

My 9-year-old son has greatly enjoyed his PLATO Earth and Space science units. It's a nice change of pace for him to be instructed by someone other than me, and he learns well from the interactive video experience. I like the worksheet packets, too, though I'd love to see a little more customizability in those. We'll definitely continue using PLATO Learning for their Life Science unit, because this format has been great for my son and I feel confident that he's retaining the knowledge that he's learning!
