The Utopia Project Fair 2017

Please see full event listing for date.


Students from Coleytown and Bedford Middle School present their creative Utopia projects at the Westport Library.

The Utopia Projects asks the question: Can an ideal human society be designed? Students spent two months designing a unique and efficient ideal society and then select a geographic location (on Earth or on the Moon), begin researching the natural resources of their selected location, and consider how to design a society that would sustain a population of 5,000 diverse individuals.

They were provided a list of detailed challenges to address, such as: natural resources, architecture, food and agriculture, education, transportation, economy, government structure, and even waste management. The challenge is to not only develop this ideal community, but to also create a three-dimensional model that will explain one detailed part of this utopia.
