PCS Edventures! Announces Continued 21st CCLC Market Penetration

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 9, 2005 -- PCS Edventures! (OTC BB: PCSV) today announced continued success in penetrating the 21st Century Community Learning Center market. The 21st CCLC Program is a key component of President Bush's No Child Left Behind Act. It is an opportunity for students and their families to continue to learn new technology skills and discover new abilities after the school day has ended. Congress has appropriated $991.07 million for after-school programs in Fiscal Year (FY) 2005.

One of only a few select vendors to attend, PCS representatives were invited to display and work with 21st Century Grantees at the recent 21st CCLC 2005 National Summer Institute in Chicago. "The 21st Century market has been an excellent fit for PCS," said Tony Maher, Chairman, President and CEO of PCS Edventures!, who also attended the Summer Institute. "The focus of the 21st CCLC program is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities in areas such as math, literacy, and technology education -- all of which are strongly embedded within our products."

"We have already included this component in one of our 21st CCLC programs and it has been a huge success. The students love it and the teachers are really pleased with the program," said Linda Austin, 21st CCLC program director from Little Rock. Additional sales from 21st Century sites in West Virginia, Michigan, Florida, Idaho, Texas, Illinois, New York and other states continue to expand the PCS penetration of the 21st Century marketplace in the United States with several new, large installations deploying in September of 2005.
