PCS Edventures! Announces Cleveland Lab Installations

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 10, 2005 -- PCS Edventures! (OTC BB: PCSV) today announced the sale of its BrickLab™ and ERC Robotics packages into multiple sites within the Cleveland School District. PCS Learning Labs are being deployed in 22 afterschool sites servicing K-12 graders and into 12 elementary schools as part of the Ohio Reads program. The Bricklab™ and the ERC are both components of the PCS comprehensive technological literacy solution that takes students from technology basics to advanced engineering and robotics competence.

Rob Smith, Regional Sales Manager for SIMC Training Systems, said, "The PCS learning programs are an extraordinary value for schools seeking both technological literacy solutions as well as exciting hands-on programs that emphasize core academics such as literacy and mathematics. We have worked closely with the Cleveland School District over the years, and recognized this program would be an excellent solution for their needs. We expect this program to continue to expand with additional sites in September of this year."

Robert Grover, PCS' Executive Vice President, said, "We couldn't be more pleased at the reception of our programs into the Cleveland School Systems and with our growing relationship with SIMC who represents us throughout Ohio. This was a unique package that included offerings from all of our major manipulative partners including MegaBloks®, LEGO®, and K'NEX® Education. Although not our single largest order for BrickLab units, this project required us to significantly ramp up our production schedule with MegaBloks® which we are very pleased with."
