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.

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.

My daughter finally enjoys doing science. This program is perfect for her visual and hands on learning style!

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!

Plato Science has proven itself to be absolutely worth the price. Initially I thought I would use it as an supplement to the Physical Science curriculum we have been using, however, it has become the core, to which I add supplements. This is because our 2 sons, ages 12 and 13, are challenged by the content and enjoy the online activities. I trust they are receiving all they need, based on the application and testing done. It is quite effective! Bravo PLATO! I look forward to using other subjects.

My daughter has thanked me more than once for getting her this program. Last year we tried middle school life science, and she liked that one less. She is a highly gifted middle schooler, and we have really enjoyed this as an introduction to physics, chemistry. One problem with the way it is set up is that the "lecture" portion has a lot of information and they immediately use it for application and practice tests. Most students would need to take notes during the lecture to remember any of it. Overall, it has been a nice alternative for an...(more)

This year, I did all the lessons for three PLATO subjects: Earth Science, Physical Science, and Life Science. I really enjoyed them, and I think I learned a lot from them. They were more interesting than a text book, though not same as actually testing a hypothesis with a person in a lab. But I really enjoyed the graphics, and my parents liked the program, too. I appreciated the convenient features of this system, including the jump menu, calculator, and glossary.

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)

My son took the PLATO Physics course last year, and learned notetaking skills, organizational skills, and study skills, as well as physics. It's an excellent product. He is currently taking the PLATO courses for Chemistry and Life Science, and I have been planning to use the Earth Science and Biology courses next year. I very much hope you can arrange to continue the PLATO program in some form, so we can continue to buy them.

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)
