On Monday, January 8, over 60 students from these high schools gathered at Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES’ Yorktown campus to take part in the OC21 program's Fall Symposium. The event was the first of the program’s two bi-annual symposiums, and invited students to discuss their classes and share their final projects with each other.
