Provider:TED.com
Summary:Age Range: 9 and up (Grades 4 and up approximately; children with parental supervision). This is a fascinating and entertaining physics tutorial on the development of tiny, autonomous, agile, aerial robots that have many applications - from being first responders in disaster situations to playing musical instruments.
Description:In this 17-minute video filmed for TED.com (TED stands for "Technology, Entertainment & Design"), the speaker is Vijay Kumar from the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Lab, at the University of Pennsylvania. He and his students blend computer science and mechanical engineering to create the next generation of robotic wonders.

Watch as the flying quadrotor robots fly through hula hoops, work together to build construction projects, provide 3-D imaging of buildings, and even play musical instruments.

If this doesn't get you interested in science, physics, engineering, entertainment, and the possibilities they offer - nothing will.
