PCS Edventures! Announces Academy of Science Installations in Idaho

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 6, 2005 -- PCS Edventures! (OTC BB: PCSV) today announced it has received orders for 32 complete Academy of Science Middle School Labs from Meridian Joint School District. The $195,000 AOS middle school program will be deployed into classrooms in seven (7) separate middle school locations within the Meridian district. The program was selected for its unique hands-on approach, portability, and overall effectiveness in conveying scientific principles through engaging, exciting activities. "We were impressed with the ease of use and excitement the program created in our students," said Suanne McCullough, Meridian School Districts Instructional Support Specialist-Coordinator of Science, Health and Gifted Programs. "We love the simplicity of the materials and the approach of this program and are looking forward to the training and deployment phase this Fall."

The PCS Academy of Science (AOS) offers a full Basel curriculum in Physical science aligned with National Science Standards. The AOS has a unique advantage over traditional textbook companies as it combines hands-on activities facilitated by special apparatus that are designed to clearly and quickly convey scientific principles to students. "We are delighted to be working with the Meridian School District and to see our own state join New York, Texas, New Jersey, Arkansas, Louisiana, and other states who are now using the Academy of Science," said Joe Egusquiza, International and Corporate Account Manager for PCS Edventures! "With the help of our nationwide network of sales agencies, we hope to see AOS coverage in all 50 states by the end of this fiscal year."

Doug Thompson, President of Technical Training Systems (TTS), the authorized agency for PCS products in Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah, said, "The Academy of Science provides a remarkable solution for schools looking to implement hands-on science in an easy-to-manage fashion. Learning is more effective when the scientific principles are seen and experienced first hand, and I have never seen a better system than this."
