Don't Forget Lunch!
The Skyline Café is available for $20 for a 30-minute time slot (maximum seating is 66). Any group using the Skyline Café must reserve in advance. Groups may use the outside solar panel picnic area at no charge. During the peak season of March to May, ASC cannot guarantee that your class can eat together in the Skyline Café.
Groups may bring sack lunches from the school, but outside-prepared food (delivery pizza, fast food, etc.) is not permitted in the Science Center.
Box lunches are available for pre-order from the full-service Subway® restaurant located in the Skyline Café. Download an order form and fax directly to Subway at (615) 214-8200 at least three days in advance.
