EdVenture, in partnership with the South Carolina Department of Public Safety and Michigan-based Key Safety Systems (KSS), re-opened AutoWorks, a newly redesigned permanent exhibit, today with a ribbon cutting. Richard Jenkins, South Carolina Department of Transportation State Traffic Management engineer, Daniel Hennigan, retired Army captain and philanthropist, Tim Maly, Key Safety Systems global director of Advanced Sales & Marketing, Karen Coltrane, EdVenture president and CEO, Lance Corporal David Jones, South Carolina Highway Patrol, and Chief Kenneth Phelps, South Carolina Department of Public Safety assisted Karen Coltrane, EdVenture’s president and CEO, with the official opening ceremony. The updated exhibit will emphasize the latest automobile safety upgrades. Museum visitors will be able to see the state’s largest seat belt, a 20-foot belt with a six-foot wide buckle. In a nod to the state’s designation as the number one tire producer in the nation, the exhibit includes an 11-foot tire climber designed by the Children’s Museum of Chicago.
