The video "Rocket Maker" was originally part of the "Now Show," and has host Ruth Sheehan interviewing 14-year-old 4-H Club member Randy Killebrew of Edgecombe County, N. C., who displays his rockets which he makes and launches himself. He demonstrates the ignition of the launch pads for six of his rockets, without actually launching them in the studio. Killebrew also talks about his interest in electric engineering and his hope to attend N. C. State in the future.
