Elderhostels provide members of the public at ages 55 and over an opportunity for concentrated, in depth exploration of a specific topic. The Department has hosted a week-long elderhostel on astronomy every summer since 2007, which is taught by Jane Charlton, Chris Palma, and Kevin Luhman. The next elderhostel is entitled Planets, Stars, Galaxies, and the Universe and will be held June 16-21, 2013, at the Penn State University Park campus. For details concerning the program and registration, please see the Road Scholar site.
