PLATO science is wonderful. We were paying way more for the PLATO classes through an online program and are continuing them through the Co-Op.

My husband and I both hold advanced degrees in science and/or medicine and find the classes to be thorough, well designed, and require very little input from me (my son is in his third middle school class). This has been very positive for us, because I had not previously found a curriculum I like and had been teaching a lot of it myself, making tests, etc.

My son's strength is science and fini...(more)

Unable to decide, I purchased all the Plato science curricula a couple of months ago. My son LOVES it. He is able to work independently of his younger sisters (it saves much rolling of the eyes), and he is thriving. Unlike other "brilliant" purchases whose websites quickly become a forgotten bookmark, there are never arguments to "do science," just happy "Okay"s.
Cyndi Foisy, Co-op Member
My son completed the Middle School Earth Science. He enjoyed the program, and definitely learned. Although we are not using it this year (that son is now in school) we will definitely consider it for son #2, and I have recommended it to friends.
K Lueth, Co-op Member
I purchased PLATO Biology for my 15-year-old 9th grader. I am using it in conjunction with a correspondence biology lab course. The available teacher materials make it easy to use. I print the supplement for each lesson - which includes summaries and illustraions, quizzes, and the \"Comprehensive Exam.\" For more complicated lessons, I also print the \"Study Guide,\" which provides a place to capture notes and makes the learning less passive. The tests are all mutiple choice, so I will supplement with more self-directed projects or assignm...(more)

We had more than one course during the year and we enjoyed the Earth/Space class as well as the biology. We were able to go over alot of material and have much reinforcement from the applications section. Great program! My daughter enjoyed it and learned alot.
Celia G., Co-op Member
My daughter has enjoyed this program since we switched to it mid-semester. She was able to test out of some of the lessons, which we both appreciated. The topics she has covered with it have been taught in a user-friendly but effective way. We are both glad I found it as a group buy, and are looking forward to using it for years to come.
Kelly S, Co-op Member
I am using the Biology module as a supplement to Apologia. It is very easy to find corresponding chapters and the material is excellent. My son is a very visual learner and the program has definitely made the material easier to learn. The interactive quizes are also very good. I am very impressed with the product and will continue to order science courses through PLATO. I have told others about it - especially those I know who are struggling in Apologia.
Virginia Phillips, Co-op Member
This is the first science curriculum product I have found that both engages and challenges my young gifted student. The real life scenarios are an excellent application tool. I highly recommend it!
J. Meekins, Co-op Member
My son has used all three of the PLATO middle school science programs and really enjoyed them. The programs covered the key topics in each subject in a really fun and engaging way, and my son retained much more of the information than he would have from a textbook. I liked the fact that it was something he could do independently while I worked with the younger children, and I appreciated the online tests and grading. I highly recommend the PLATO middle school programs, especially for visual learners like my son.
Jackie, Co-op Member
My son is a big science fan and this is the first program he has taken that has kept him engaged and challenged. He likes that it is self-paced and he can do as much or as little as his time and interest allow. I like it because it is easy to see his progression and where he needs extra work. The mix of online and offline activities is important to get the complete experience. We have tried other science programs, but they either required way too much prep time for me, moved too slowly or were at a level that was inappropriate for a whip-smart ...(more)
