Science Fairs or STEM Fairs

Perhaps we need "STEM Fairs."  When looking over "science" projects I look for measurements (and theories, and hypotheses, etc.).  But engineering projects are more about building things (things which perform particular tasks). Similarly "computer science" projects may be programs that perform various useful functions.  The judging criteria need to be expanded if "science" fairs are to include engineering, math, and technology as well as science.
