I bought three of the CyberEd 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...(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)

The earth science course was fantastic. I have been recommending it to all of my friends. It was informative, interactive, and entertaining. My boys wanted to do it everyday and were so exciting when it was their time slot and they could go online to learn more. We look at clouds differently now. They are no longer rain clouds, rather cumulonimbus clouds. My youngest stared drawing pillow lava in art class.

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.
Ivonne D., Co-op Member
My son has used all three of the PLATO middle school science programs and really enjoyed them. The programs covered the key topics in each subject in a really fun and engaging way, and my son retained much more of the information than he would have from a textbook. I liked the fact that it was something he could do independently while I worked with the younger children, and I appreciated the online tests and grading. I highly recommend the PLATO middle school programs, especially for visual learners like my son.
Jackie, Co-op Member
We love Plato. It is perfect for our family. The content is comprehensive and complete. My daughter has scored exceptionally well on the ACT after taking these courses!
Jamie S., Co-op Member
PLATO Science courses are amazing! In a world that has become increasingly "simplified" regarding education, PLATO provides a rigorous, informative level of science education that is, (wait) FUN!!! I have always written my own curriculum for our 3 children, with a focus on science because I have a science background (microbiology) and find most products too ridiculously simple, even for children. Due to my youngest child's struggle with dyslexia and my search for more visual learning, I decided to try one of PLATO's courses: Middle School Ea...(more)

I've used this product with all 4 of our homeschooled children during upper elementary and middle school. The courses keep the kids engaged and their retention rate is fairly high. I would recommend this as a good basis for high school science. A high school level would be a great addition.

Unable to decide, I purchased all the CyberEd 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.
Cyndi Foisy, 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.
