Subject: Measure Mag Field w/out Gauss meter

Hi all,

I have a group in my Inquiry Science class (highschool) setting up an inquiry regarding the effects of magnetic fields on living subjects (pill bugs). The original question regards the long term exposure to the magnetic field around powerlines.

In lieu of power lines, they want to use permanent magnets of varying strengths (which we have), but we have no gauss meter, and so apparently no way of quantifying the mag field strength of our magnets.

Any bright ideas?

Thanks in advance.
Samantha
