I purchased the whole complement of Plato and my daughter uses it to round out the science material from her textbook. I like the fact that this system could stand alone on its own merits. If one chose not to purchase a textbook and workbook, your student could learn science just as easily by this method, and visiting the libary to check out books on the subject in particular. I like the fact that my daughter can take a quiz and determine for herself, if she really understands the material. I think it is an excellent product and hope that it is...(more)

I signed up my daughter, 9, for the Plato Middle School Sciences and she has really been enjoying it very much. She has been working on Earth Science but has access to Life and Space (?) as well. The interactive lessons hold her interest and I like that there is an application and practice tests leading up to the mastery test. She loves that she can be autonomous and review as much or as little as needed. I would recommend this to anyone whose child is interested in science.

My sons have enjoyed the Plato science program for over 4 yrs. They are extremely helpful to me because they engage them in a simulated, hands on way, on a regular basis, which has been a challenge for me to do consistently myself. They remember what they learn and they enjoy the lessons and challenges. I like how they aren't just memorizing facts but they are trying and experimenting for themselves. It is very comprehensive and thorough. I have given my kids the opportunity to choose their own science program and they chose Plato, hands dow...(more)

My 13 year old daughter loves the PLATO programs. She did Life Science and Earth Science last year, and is taking Physical Science this year. She thinks it's a great review of the text we're using.
Rhee Eliker, Co-op Member
I cannot say enough good things about Plato learning! Unaware of the format, I accidently ordered ALL four of your courses for my son at the same time. He's slightly advanced in science, as he was in fourth grade at the time, but he LOVED them! He completed all four of them within the year. Now, three years later, I'm back and ordering for my daughter. She is whipping through lessons like crazy, and is happy to hear: "Ooo ooo! Go do your science!"
Cyndi Foisy, Co-op Member
My son completed the Middle School Earth Science. He enjoyed the program, and definitely learned. Although we are not using it this year (that son is now in school) we will definitely consider it for son #2, and I have recommended it to friends.
K Lueth, Co-op Member
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.
Cyndi Foisy, Co-op Member
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 PLATO presented the information in a more meaningful and memorable manner.
I must say that the PLATO experience was also more pleasant than the book only. I am looking forward to p...(more)

I love it! My 12 year old son is using the astromony portion of Earth Science and Space while my 14 and 16 year olds are using biology! I just today found the teacher's area and the quizes and tests are wonderful! I also like the worksheets although they are too long and detailed to print. I am using apologia books and have interspersed the PLATO. It will be interesting to see which they prefer and which they learn more and easier from! They are enjoying the activities also. I also purchased Life Science and now just need to find time to ...(more)

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!
