PCS Edventures! Announces PCS BrickLab®-K'NEX Partnership

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2007 -- PCS Edventures!.com, Inc. (OTCBB: PCSV) today announced the official launch of an expanded supplier relationship with K'NEX Education in which K'NEX will supply their new building bricks for use in the PCS BrickLab® product line. The PCS BrickLab® curriculum series, a complete Pre-K through Grade 5 technology education solution, is the initial stage in the PCS Edventures Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) solution. PCS Edventures' STEM solution is now being used for teaching students standards-based technology literacy concepts.

Robert Grover, PCS Executive Vice President, said, "K'NEX Education has proven itself not only as an outstanding strategic partner, but also as a reliable supplier of some of the highest quality building manipulatives in the industry. With the size and scope of our current market expansion, we need very reliable partners to meet our growing needs. PCS has a great deal of experience with the numerous manipulative companies on the market, and we continue to narrow the field in terms of product and partner quality. K'NEX bricks are outstanding and we look forward to delivering millions of them into classrooms in the coming years."

PCS now utilizes two primary suppliers for PCS BrickLab® components, K'NEX Education, located in Hatfield, Pennsylvania, and Eduwise, Ltd., a PCS Licensee located in Seoul, South Korea. Previous PCS BrickLab® suppliers included Megabloks® and LEGO®, neither of which PCS currently utilizes.
