It generally is for these sorts of things - though sometimes it's Death Rays thanks to Tesla's sense of humor/delusions/con artistry.

One of the problems I have here is this seed is this is somehow supposed to have encouraged science education, when science has been pretty clear about for half a century even at this point in history is that extracting useful energy from atmospheric electricity is pretty much impossible. Some optimists might argue about thunderstorms but even then it'd be from the convection, not the electrical effects. So the fact that it worked seems to be more an incentive to doubt science than encourage it. Not that the *real* Second World War doesn't have lots and lots and lots of evidence that science and engineering are extremely important.
