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.

The Boy Who Wouldn’t Go to Bed, by Helen Cooper

Posted by on Friday, Jan 13, 2012 - 5:07 PM

Ages 3-6
A young boy is determined to stay awake all night. As he drives around in his red car he meets up with all kids of friends. He asks each one to play, but everyone is on their way to bed. The little boy seems to be the only one awake in the whole wide world… or is he? This is a fun story to read just before dropping off to sleep, except of course, if you plan on staying up all night!
