CyberEd's lesson/application method for instruction has been perfect for our three girls. Combined with the teacher's resources (use those quizzes!), the girls' understanding of science concepts is far greater than with the standard textbook approach. We have used four of the courses now, and recommend them all!

Wonderful program! We are a science family. Dad is a PhD organic chemist. Our 13 year old who loves science is doing very well with it independently - great for both mom and student. I struggled to find something appropriate for his age that would still be challenging since he knows so much, and this hit the mark perfectly! He loves his science time and of his own initiative enjoys teaching me in detail what he's learned when we're in the car. That shows me he's really absorbing the information, and that Plato's doing a great job explaini...(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)

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.
D. Maulding, Co-op Member
My 12 year old is taking the Plato Earth and Space Science for Middle Schoolers. The only big problem we have with it is they don't tell you what they correct answer is when you get something wrong. Other than that my son has liked all the Plato Middle School science he has taken (last year it was Physical Science and Biology). We intend to do Chemistry when it's offered again.

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
My 10 year old son has really enjoyed the Plato Life Sciences online course. Even though it can be very hard to hold his attention for any period of time, I've had no trouble with this program. That could be partly because it is online, partly because he can go at his own speed, but also because he enjoys the content and presentation. I did wonder if it might be too advanced for him, but clearly the course presenters understand kids capabilities very well. I rarely have to actively supervise while he's following the program, and you gotta lo...(more)

Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity. I was overwhelmed by what our children needed to know and it is ALL right here at THEIR fingertips! They love it.

A few evenings ago, after both had had some genetics material (one from Life Science and one from Biology), we watch a science channel program which reinforced this; and all this learning led to an hour discussion regarding how interesting this field is, potential discoveries and possible career choices!! All led by the girls! They love the interactive learning and can't wait to...(more)

This is an exceptional program. My son used this for physical science and air/space 2 years ago. On standardized testing he has scored consistantly above the 80th percentile for the past two years. However, last year we used a book biology only with a dissection lab and on this year's testing he scored about the 50th percentile for that information. I deduce that Cybered presented the information in a more meaningful and memorable manner.
I must say that the Cybered experience was also more pleasant than the book only. I am looking forward...(more)

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)
