r0ket offers the possibility to make cool m0dules, without having the costs for standard parts (controller, display, batteries). For an event you can chose an interesting (and expensive) component and focus workshops, games and experiments on that component.

And you can combine all the m0dules you want, keep using old ones and show those you developed yourself.
