This week the Ontario Science Centre will see over 75 thousand visitors.  

Weather Network reporter Natalie Thomas had the opportunity to tour the Centre and explore all the different exhibitions.

"March break is one of the busiest times of the year, "Says Karen Hager, Director of Science Engagement.  "We have all kinds of exciting opportunities for families to come in and experience, " she adds.

The centre has a variety of different exhibitions to see.  The science of the super dog is a new live action event with about 40 dogs that are all different breeds.

And there are lots of weather related exhibitions as well.  ''The rain forest is a main attraction which is located in the living earth hall," explains Hager.   "It's a very humid, very real experience, it's just like you were walking down a rain forest in the amazon, '' Hager adds.  

From learning how birds fly, to discovering the powers of electricity and even testing your waste sorting knowledge. The Ontario Science Centre has a lot to see, do and learn - and the kids should be tired by the end of the day.
