Frequently Asked Questions
What is a hangout?
Hangouts are FUN social gatherings that are typically scheduled for the 1st Saturday of each month from 6pm to 9pm. It is a great time for registered students, their friends or others interested in joining our community, to game and hangout together and get to know each other better. Hangouts are designed for 8yrs and older however, if a younger child wants to attend arrangements will need to be made in advance with Management, so that proper supervision can be verified and provided.
While here at our facility, children enjoy using the high speed internet connection, company computers, Minecraft accounts and console games. They can watch movies, play video games and board and card games or just relax in the lounge area on the sofa. Teens may request a separate hangout area for just them. No instruction is provided during hangouts. This is a FUN social night!
When are hangouts?
Typically the 1st Saturday of each month from 6pm to 9pm. The regular date is occasionally moved if there is a holiday or school break. Holiday time and school is out hangouts are often added. If you're not sure when the next hangout is, you should check this page before arriving.
Does my child need to bring anything to eat or drink?
Please have your child eat dinner before arriving. There is a sink in the main area to get a cup of water. We serve popcorn and water as a between 6:45pm and 7pm. If you don't have time to serve dinner at home, the staff is happy to order pizza and have it delivered to our office for your child if you leave cash and instructions at the front desk. DCRobotics does not guarantee a nut free/allergy free environment; however food consumption is in designated areas.

What if they don't like it?
This is a question that guests sometime ask when their child comes for the first time. In our experience the children love it and prefer not to be picked up early. We usually have to shut off the lights and herd them out at the end since they are still having fun all the way up until 9pm. If your child wants to leave at anytime, the staff is happy to call you or lend the phone to your child to call you.
Should I pick up early the first time?
In our experience the children, even the younger ones, love it at the hangouts and prefer to stay the whole time. We usually have to shut off the lights at the end since they are still having fun all the way up until 9pm and don't want to leave. Usually they want to be the last one out so we release them all at 9pm. We are happy to get your child for you before 9pm. If you know you will pick up early, we recommend letting us know so we can give them a five minute notice to finish their game.
Can they bring their own electronic devices?
Yes. Children may bring laptops, ipads, board games and card games etc. and connect to our wifi. Make sure to put your name on any items your child brings, since we can't replace missing or broken items. The wifi password is on the screen in the front lobby to connect your devices upon entering. If you don't see the password, you or your child, can ask a staff member for assistance.
