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)

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!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

GREAT JOB SECURING THE PLATO SCIENCE CURRICULUM. I THINK IT IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST PROGRAM AROUND BUT IT WAS NOT AVAILABLE TO ME UNTIL NOW.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
Linda B.,
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
We have used: Switched-On, Apologia, and Real Science 4 kids.

My daughter is currently using Plato-Learning and loves it! She has commented on how much she enjoys the high-quality animation. It seems to be both effective and entertaining.

I have a strong scientific background, and I am impressed with this program. I would highly recommend it!

Drawbacks? Access only during alloted time slots. [Editor's Note: 24 hour subscription options are available.] Lack of hands-on labs (you may want to supplement, but we are very content...(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
I am using the Earth and Space Science with my 14 year old son. Content wise, it is very thorough. It is also done very well with the picures, diagrams, etc. He really enjoys learning Science in this manner. The website is also very easy to use. I like that you can see at a glance what you have mastered.
Debbie Wilks, Co-op Member
We have enjoyed using PLATO Life Science during our first year of homeschooling. We plan to complete Earth and Physical Science this year. It kept my electronically-inclined son quite engaged with its vivid and entertaining lectures. I appreciated its thorough content and mastery tests. I have recommended it to other homeschooling families.
Desiree D., Co-op Member
This is our second year using the PLATO online science program purchased through the Homeschool Buyers Co-op and my boys both love it! We could not afford (as a one income family) to use this curriculum if it were not for the great pricing offered to us through the co-op. We would be sorely disappointed if we had to now look for something else for next year, as we finally believed we had found the one to carry us through all the way 12th grade with both our sons. We love this program and hope it will still be available to us through the Homesch...(more)
Mrs. Eileen Hanks, Co-op Member
All I can say is "I Love this science program!" It offers great depth of material (I have learned a great deal and we're only on middle school), wonderful graphics and it's interactive. My kids really enjoy it. I like that it is very comprehensive so I never feel like the kids are missing anything. The only thing I have added to this program are some science project kits for some hands on experiments. We have used the program for 2 years and plan to use this program all the way through high school.
