ANSYS Sponsors Dinosaurs Exhibit at Carnegie Museum of Natural History

SOUTHPOINTE, Pa., March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANSYS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced it is a sponsor of the Dinosaurs in Their Time exhibit at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. This is the first permanent exhibit in the world to feature scientifically accurate, immersive environments that are composed of original fossil specimens. It is unique in that the dinosaurs are posed in active, engaging stances based on modern scientific conceptions, rather than the long-held notion of lumbering, tail-dragging, cold-blooded, lizard-like creatures.

ANSYS is sponsoring the dinosaur exhibit as part of its corporate citizenship program. The Company honors a commitment to make "community" an area of focus, a way for it to improve and enrich life in the locales where employees reside and work. ANSYS has a long history of making annual contributions toward community resources, and the museum dinosaur exhibit is the latest example. "We are pleased to be in a position to give back to our community," said Jim Cashman, president and CEO of ANSYS, Inc. "The museum is a source of pride for Pittsburgh, as it is the city's largest and most far- reaching cultural organization as well as a showcase and educational experience for the many people who come to visit." In celebration of the sponsor agreement, ANSYS hosted a "Night at the Museum" so its employees and their families could learn first-hand the significance of the exhibit.

"Dinosaurs in Their Time gives the museum's world-class fossil collection a home worthy of its immense scientific importance," said Dr. Zhe-Xi Luo, acting co-director and associate director of science and research at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. "It is through the generosity of companies like ANSYS that we are able to create something truly unique, educational and inspiring. Everyone at the museum is proud that this world-class collection of real dinosaur fossils is now presented to the public in the most accurate and most inspirational exhibit."

Of the 19 free-standing dinosaur skeletons on exhibit in Dinosaurs in Their Time, 15 of them consist almost entirely of real fossil bones. The museum is home to one of the world's best fossil collections, including the world's greatest collection of dinosaurs from the Jurassic Age.

About Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Carnegie Museum of Natural History is one of the six largest natural history museums in the nation, with more than 20 million specimens from all areas of natural history and anthropology. It is heralded as one of the best places in the world to see and learn about dinosaurs; the spectacular fossil collection is largely credited to Andrew Carnegie's fascination with dinosaurs near the turn of the 20th century, which inspired him to finance paleontological digs in several western states for more than two decades. The museum promotes stewardship of earth and its life; builds strategic collections to preserve evidence of that knowledge; and engages the public in the excitement of scientific discovery about the evolutionary, environmental and cultural processes that shape the diversity of our world and its inhabitants.
