Sphero as the engine for spaceships

A project I’ve done with my students is to use Sphero as the engine for a spaceship.

We taped down all the planets in our solar system and students coded their spaceship (Sphero) to travel between planets. The first activity was to get the spaceship to take off and come back to them (earth). Once they managed that, they could move on and try and travel between planets.
