DataWorks, Inc., developers of Next® Inventory Software, was honored to be a partner/sponsor of the Dinosaurs & Ice Age Giants traveling exhibit at the Imaginarium Hands-On Museum and Aquarium in Fort Myers, Fla.

The eight nearly life-sized robotic dinosaurs and a selection of ice age mammals were on display at the children’s museum, shown in conjunction with the 3-D film DINOSAURS: Giants of Patagonia from January 9 to May 9, 2010. It is one of the most popular and well-attended traveling exhibits at the Imaginarium to date, with over 45,000 visitors.

“This exhibit has exceeded our expectations and attendance projections,” said Matthew Johnson, Imaginarium director. “This traveling exhibit is a great example of a public/private partnership. Partnerships like this work to bring our community quality arts, culture and education.”

“We were very excited to be a part of this exhibit,” said Mark Cecil, president of DataWorks, Inc. “The Imaginarium is providing valuable education to community children in such an interesting and involving manner. Kids are finding out that learning can be fun. Since we work with numerous museums and amusement parks, this partnership seemed ideal.”
