Unable to decide, I purchased all the Plato science curricula a couple of months ago. My son LOVES it. He is able to work independently of his younger sisters (it saves much rolling of the eyes), and he is thriving. Unlike other "brilliant" purchases whose websites quickly become a forgotten bookmark, there are never arguments to "do science," just happy "Okay"s.

PLATO'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!
Janine Perkins, Co-op Member
This past year, my daughter completed the PLATO Life Science course. She really enjoyed it, and finished the course quite quickly. She and a friend would often discuss what they learned on PLATO, and she seemed to have a very good grasp of the basics involved. It took teaching science basics off my plate, and allowed her to do some self-guided learning. I am thrilled that we will have access to this program again, and look forward to doing the physical science this upcoming year.

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)

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)

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)

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
Last year my son used PLATO Physical Science for 5th grade. He loved the lessons and application part of it. The tests were a bit challenging...especially on the chemistry part, but he could go back over the lesson and retake the tests. We found it helpful to break some lessons into two or three days. He is learning to take notes on the information, which is helpful. This year we are using PLATO Life Sciences and so far, he is absolutely loving it and doing excellent on the tests!
P. Peters, Co-op Member
We give homeschooling to our children and PLATO-Leaning is a success story. Our oldest son who is in 9th grade is using the curriculum of PLATO-Physics. He is learning with enthusiasm and at his own pace. We will definitely continue to use PLATO-Leaning.
