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!

My son loves PLATO. It is his favorite part of of our science curriculum.
Tami H., Co-op Member
I have 3 very active boys and was pleased to see them drift in one by one (along with a friend) and stop to watch the tutorial on volcanoes. They kept asking mr to keep going. This was a first-class interactive, fun & informative program. Worth every penny!
Dawn Grossmann, Co-op Member
As homeschoolers we are so pleased with the quality, flexibility and format of the Plato Life Science course. The tests give me measurable results for learning while we can learn at the pace that is comfortable for my student. We plan on using other Plato science courses in the future.

My 13 year old daughter loves the PLATO programs. She did Life Science and Earth Science last year, and is taking Physical Science this year. She thinks it's a great review of the text we're using.
Rhee Eliker, Co-op Member
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)

My 8-year-old son did the Plato Science series. To be sure, he has an aptitude for science, but equally clear is that he is still a child and susceptible to frustration when something is not clear or accessible. Aside from occasional software glitches, however, we had no complaints--my son found them consistently enjoyable and rewarding.
The presentation of material was well organized, clear and engaging, with well-timed reviews and reinforcements of key concepts. For younger students, it also helps that the student's progress is visual...(more)

This past year, my daughter completed the PLATO Life Science course. She really enjoyed it, and finished the course quite quickly. She and a friend would often discuss what they learned on PLATO, and she seemed to have a very good grasp of the basics involved. It took teaching science basics off my plate, and allowed her to do some self-guided learning. I am thrilled that we will have access to this program again, and look forward to doing the physical science this upcoming year.
CD Smith, Co-op Member
My son enjoys the program and that's half the battle when learning. The graphics and applications really help the information come alive and stay with you. It is very thorough also. I have no hesitation in choosing Plato Science programs for all 4 years of high school.
teacher/mom, Co-op Member
Subscribed to Physical Science for my 9th grader. He was actually watching some of the videos at 11:00 pm the night our subscription ended. He wanted to get all he could from the program. Even my 5th grader learned a lot from the presentation. We are looking forward to purchasing our next PLATO course. The only problem...which one to buy.
