Abstract:Renewable energy is the use of natural resources to generate electricity. Similarly, Kelvin’s Thunderstorm which is an electrostatic concept, uses nothing more than running water to generate electricity. However, the current generation is not high enough to power an actual device, so it does not necessarily operate to the full capacity of a renewable energy source. Due to static electricity being a topic of science and not enough students are interested in science, research is done to figure out "What factors of design attract individuals to the science behind of technology?" The main reasons as to why there is a lack thereof, are that students personally feel that the content of science is too difficult to comprehend, that the educational institution fails to implement the STEM program properly or that the engagement with science professionals is not optimal. There are two factors that can resolve these problems, namely the “Setting” and “Collaboration”.
