I am using the plato science this year and doing Life, Physical, and Earth sciences. It will be hard to get all this done in a year because the lessons are pretty detailed espesically when you add things like I do. I use them as a springboard for ideas, I add microscope work and make use vocab quizzes using the Glossary included in the lessons. Over all, it gives a good overview of the lessons alone, but I like to go a bit deeper. I'm using it for an 8th grader who excels at science naturally. I belive this will help ground him with a basi...(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)

Plato Science (we are doing the Physical Science program and previously did the Geology program) has enabled us to have an intelligent, clearly explained course in science for middle school that helps me teach my son subjects that have changed significantly since I was a kid. My son has to work, take notes, and respond while we are working on the course. I have not tried other courses because I liked Plato very much the first time we tried it. That time we used it as an adjunct to a course and this time we are using it alone since the Plato cou...(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!

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!

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 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)

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.

My 2 girls were very pleased with the Plato Science middle school modules. They each did all 3 modules in about a semester as they were on the older end of middle school at the time.

Then they moved on to the high school sciences. As a parent, I was more impressed with the Biology than with the Chemistry. Biology was an extremely complete course of study. The student study guides were a valuable resource. My daughter followed along and took notes in the study guide, and I think her retention of the material was much better.

My older ...(more)

Plato middle school science is a great curriculum. I especially appreciate the way it makes abstract topics understandable through the use of animation rather than 1 dimensional photos of a textbook. It has made my job much easier.
