Are you all as thrilled to have PLATO as I am? I waited 3 years to be able to use it! I found cybered products about five years ago and LOVED them! I have bought many products as stand alones but have waited abd longed for the day I could use a complete program. I am so pleased with the Chemistry and Life Science we have. The kids really like it alot. I love the interest level and the simplicity of the harder calculations in the chemistry. We really got a wonderful deal from PLATO and I am so grateful to all involved that made this product ava...(more)

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 sons have enjoyed the Plato science program for over 4 yrs. They are extremely helpful to me because they engage them in a simulated, hands on way, on a regular basis, which has been a challenge for me to do consistently myself. They remember what they learn and they enjoy the lessons and challenges. I like how they aren't just memorizing facts but they are trying and experimenting for themselves. It is very comprehensive and thorough. I have given my kids the opportunity to choose their own science program and they chose Plato, hands dow...(more)

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.
Tricia B, Co-op Member
We have really enjoyed Plato science. The colorful and detailed illustrations help make the lessons fun. I appreciate that the lessons are linear and not too busy. Although much of the vocabulary is new, the lesson uses the terms frequently, with illustration, and in context so that the words soon become familiar. As a busy mom, I like this curriculum much better than unstructured resources no matter how complete. I expect that we will continue to use Plato Science as long as I continue to homeschool.
D. Dayley, Co-op Member
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)

Just want to let you know that my two boys look forward to PLATO science three times a week. They would love to do it everyday! We have also had several occasions where they have told me some interesting facts and when I asked how they knew that they replied "From our computer science program." We definitely plan to renew our subscription and have already recommended to friends. Two of them have gotten subscriptions and also love it!
Virginia T., Co-op Member
The earth science course was fantastic. I have been recommending it to all of my friends. It was informative, interactive, and entertaining. My boys wanted to do it everyday and were so exciting when it was their time slot and they could go online to learn more. We look at clouds differently now. They are no longer rain clouds, rather cumulonimbus clouds. My youngest stared drawing pillow lava in art class.
Olivia, Co-op Member
I bought three of the PLATO programs during the first group buy,physical,life and earth and space, for my sons ages 10 and 12. We were unable to complete all three during the year and I am participating in the current buy. We were pleasantly surprised to find the programs are so thorough and in-depth. I will not say that my kids love these programs and beg to do them because that is not the case. Instead I will share with you what my 10 year old recently said about the programs. "They're not my favorite and it takes a lot of time to do it but I...(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!
