    I work at a museum and we are having a special day dedicated to the Parker Solar Probe and its launch.

    -We have looked up some activity ideas from NASA Wavelength and the NASA Museum alliance. I believe there will be solar cookies and also we will model the inner solar system in order to have people understand the mission route and speed.

    -There will be H-alpha solar observing and activities we used during the recent solar eclipse.

    I was wondering if you had any other ideas that would help our audiences understand the Parker Solar Probe:

    What does it mean to "touch" the Sun and how do I illustrate it?

    Do you have anything of Parker or his lab that we could display?
