[Microbiology] Experiment with bacteria and magnets

I am in grade 10 and would like to do a science fair experiment using agar
dishes and a simple culture from staph epidermidis and have strong magnets
(north and south) in each side of the petri dish, to see if the bacteria
chooses to align with the magnets.
I am unsure if this will show any changes at all, please tell me if this is
not a good idea, and if there are other ideas to see effects of the magnetic
fields in cellular life.
Thank you!!!
