Timmy Etherington, 7, a first-grader at Rancho Romero Elementary School, assembled the best Lego pieces for his toy vehicle at Alamo Elementary School on Monday.

He participated in the San Ramon Valley YMCA's Lego Engineering Camp, which started Monday and ended today. Forty children participated in the camp's morning sessions, and 60 in the afternoon workshops.

Project engineering fundamentals, introduction to motors, designing bridges and friction and slippage are some samples of the camp's curriculum, said Kathy Chiverton, executive director of the San Ramon Valley YMCA.
