MARCH 10 TO 18 Can you teach an old dog new tricks? A better question: How do you teach any dog new tricks? The Ontario Science Centre offers answers this March Break with The Science of the SuperDogs, which adds a twist to the traditional spectacle of running, jumping, fetching and paw shaking that we all know and love with an educational presentation highlighting how canines have come to fit into our world. Audiences will even have the opportunity to interact with the pooches between performances. It all adds up to an amusing opportunity to learn more about man’s best friend. Ontario Science Centre, $13 to $20; call 416-696-1000 or click here for tickets and more information.
