The M.A.G. Magnetic Alternative Generator Austin Hanebutt and Clayton Hill Biomedical Sciences
Purpose, Design and Function The M.A.G. uses magnetic repulsion to make other forms of energy more efficient. The repulsion turns an inner shaft which is connected to a generator. This would enhance the rotational speed of the generator. Therefore producing a greater output.
Impact on the Community The M.A.G. would create jobs. The M.A.G. would be manufactured in our area. Therefore spurring economic growth in our area. The M.A.G. would make power generation more productive, thereby lowering power costs in our area.
