PCS Edventures! Announces Kansas Kids Partnership

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 1, 2007 -- PCS Edventures!.com, Inc. (OTCBB: PCSV) today announced the deployment of its PCS Academy of Robotics™ and other hands-on learning labs to multiple sites throughout the state of Kansas, through a partnership with the Kansas Kids @ GEAR UP program. Kansas Kids @ GEAR UP is a U.S. Department of Education-funded program, with Wichita State University serving as the host institution. Children in foster care are given top priority for services, while limited income and children in adoptive care also qualify for this program.

The implementation includes the PCS Academy of Robotics, Edventures On-Line, PCS Academy of Science™, PCS BrickLab®, and K'NEX® Education learning lab packages that were delivered to multiple sites across six regions throughout the state of Kansas, including the cities of Pittsburgh, Topeka, Kansas City, Wichita, Hutchinson, and many others. Bill Albert, National Sales Manager for PCS Edventures, said, "This exciting implementation is the result of over a year of hard work, including competing against several local and national suppliers, to get this $150,000 order with the Kansas Kids @ GEAR UP organization. In the end, it became an easy decision for them due to the depth and breadth of our content. It's wonderful to see such a well-managed organization delivering our materials to these children, for a very worthy cause."

Corinne Nilsen, the State Director of Kansas Kids@ GEAR UP, said, "We are thrilled to have such exciting hands-on resources now available for our students. The curriculum, support, and engaging approach to education by PCS is truly a powerful solution for our staff. Our students can't wait!"
