I am a curriculum junkie, so I've taken a look at a lot of science curricula. Plato/CyberEd has the best coverage of middle school science topics I've seen, and the kids love it. I can't recommend it highly enough. We can't wait to try the high school courses by Plato/CyberEd!
Amy T-B, 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.
Ivonne D., Co-op Member
This is our second year using the Cyber Ed 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 Home...(more)

The Plato program is very informational with its own built in assessment. It is user friendly and my son enjoyed using the program. He did well with it. I was refered to it by my sister who homeschools her child as well.
Anne, Co-op Member
We bought both the life science and physical science for my children. Both we wonderful programs that exceeded what we expected. I would say if you are looking at either of these programs they are worth it.
M. Fletcher, Co-op Member
My ten year old used CyberEd Earth Science this past year. We both found it engaging and fun yet packed with challenging content. He worked independently most of the year. I think this would be considered a bit much for many kids this age but we went into it knowing ahead of time it would stretch my son. We were both pleased when he got a 70% or so on the tests. We were thrilled when he got a 100% on at least one test. Even my five year old loved to cuddle up next to his brother to see the lessons. I would recommend this program for motiva...(more)

I am just thrilled with the Cyber-ed courses we've purchased through the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op. My younger child has been speeding through middle school life science, and my older homeschooler has been enjoying the high school level biology. The lessons are very comprehensive and presented in an engaging manner, but without gratuitous cartoon characters or goofy professors. We've also purchased subscriptions to two additional Cyber-ed courses. It's an incredible value for the relatively small investment we made.
Lorel Shea, co-op member/ Gifted Education editor
This year, I did all the lessons for three CyberEd 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.
J. J. M. Braulick, Co-op Member
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.
Olivia, Co-op Member
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)
