PCS Edventures! Announces Commencement of Initial Phase of Project in Saudi Arabia

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - December 16, 2008) - PCS Edventures! (OTCBB: PCSV), which designs, develops and markets educational learning labs and related products and services to customers throughout the world, today announced that PCS Middle East has received a purchase order to supply robotics and technology kits for the initial 50 schools in accordance with the $3.3 billion (US), six-year King Abdullah Education Initiative in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. A professional development program around these kits that includes University credit will commence for teachers from these sites on December 21st, 2008, with additional training programs scheduled for follow up in January of 2009.

"We are very pleased to have PCS Middle East receive the order for the first phase of our participation in the King Abdullah Education Initiative, which is designed to benefit students at more than 22,000 schools over a six-year period," stated Tony Maher, Chief Executive Officer of PCS. "While we originally expected to begin shipping our products more than 18 months ago, we are excited that the project has commenced in the last three months and look forward to an expansion in the number of participating schools during calendar 2009. The scope and size of this project is extremely ambitious, which has caused understandable changes in schedules and timelines.

"While we understand that PCS will be involved in the entire six-year project, I urge our stockholders and the investment community to share our caution regarding near-term revenue expectations, because the pace of the initial roll-out schedule has been slower than we originally had been informed."
