Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But one thing to remember when playing with magnets is that with protons and electrons, it's possible to have only a + or only a -. That doesn't happen with magnets: They always have both a North and a South pole. That means that while everything you can do with (static) magnets can in principle be duplicated with (static) electrons and protons, electrons and protons can do a lot of interesting things that magnets can't.
