Family Fun Friday at Courthouse Museum
August 9 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm| Free
Join the Courthouse Museum for their final summer Family Fun Friday at the Courthouse Museum site in Lakeport and learn about borax. Look, learn, and create together during this fun, interactive program for kids of all ages and their parents/caregivers.
From 10:30-12:30, drop in to learn about the science of borax. One of the first sources of commercial borax was Lake County’s very own Borax Lake. Learn about this mineral with two hands-on science projects, borax slime and a bouncy ball. Take home a borax crystal and learn how to grow your own.
This activity is aimed for older children and adults, however younger kids will need a parent’s or adult’s assistant.
The museum will also be open at this time for all visitors, with staff available to answer any questions you have about Lake County history.
