Start by investigating standard electrostatic configurations, such as point sources, dipoles, and capacitors. Then go further. You might, for example, investigate whether a person is safe in a car, under a tree, or on top of a flag pole in a thunder storm. Or you might create an electrostatic model of fluid flow to show that water flows fastest in the narrowest portion of a hose.
