Is magnetism a source of green energy? Sort of. Magnetism by itself may not provide a new source of green energy. However, it’s clear that it could play a big role in lowering costs and improving efficiency for a number of renewable energy sources. Looking for a fun after school craft or rainy day project?  Have some fun with exploring the cool properties of magnets!
