If you like history about inventors, where nuclear bomb initiated, etc., this is a good one. I just learned that An Austrian (Telsa) found alternating current which Thomas Edison disagreed with it (Edison found direct current).

My 10 and 13 year old both think this video is very interesting. I like that fact that they are learning while watching something.
