PCS Edventures! Announces Louisiana Professional Development

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 12, 2005 -- PCS Edventures! (OTC BB: PCSV) today announced the sale of the initial Academy of Science (AOS) Professional Development services for the Department of Education for the State of Louisiana. Philip Boyd, of Technical Training Aids (TTA), the authorized sales agency for PCS programs in Louisiana, said, "This approach to professional development is both engaging and effective for teachers, and TTA views the AOS product line as an excellent solution for all schools throughout our sales territory. We are aggressively marketing this program throughout Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas to take advantage of the federal mandate for professional development in Science."

The AOS Professional Development series was launched by PCS earlier this year in response to the national mandate of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) to raise the level of knowledge of Science teachers across the country. This initial deployment in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, includes hands-on training using the unique PCS Academy of Science WizKits and is focused on the concepts of atmospheric pressure and vacuum. Solly Tamari, Academy of Science product manager, said, "Once teachers have the opportunity to use our special apparatus and hands-on methods, we are confident they will not only meet the 'highly qualified' status required by NCLB, but they will be anxious to press for full AOS implementations into their school districts. Our professional development series establishes a strong relationship with teachers and administrators that can be quickly cultivated into a district wide program implementation once they have experienced our program first hand."
