This would be a nice break during a discussion about the history of electricity. Especially appealing to the middle school student. I didn't find it very educational per se, but could certainly be used to solidify the concept in students' minds.

A fun way to introduce those famous men of AC and DC electricity.

I love Nice Peter and how he does the epic rap battles of history. Theses are a fun way to learn history that many can relate to.

An amusing way to discuss the conflict between Edison and Tesla. I would probably show this video in a high school physics class but only for entertainment; not for educational purposes.

That was pretty funny, I think Telsa won, Edison was too mean and angry.
