Exclamation Model Rocket Launch

Hello all,
Today my science teacher assigned us a project to do. We must design a model rocket that is able to launch above the opening height. To do this we must creat a launch pad and fuel. The catch; The rocket must be able to carry a raw egg up each time (twice), and no fractures may be in the shell at all, or points will be deducted. The other catch is you can't use any of the following items:
Alka Setzer
Baking Soda
Balloons
Bouncy Balls
Bubble Wrap
Carpet
Candle Wax
Ceramics
Clay
Egg Cartons
Fiber Glass
Fire of any sort
Food Items
Fur
Gasoline
Glass
Gunpowder
Hair
Ice Packs
Leather
Metal
Nails
Packing Peanuts
Pillows
Pins
Pre-made Rocket motors
Rubber
Saw Dust
Shoes
Sponges
Stuffing
Styrofoam
Tissue paper
Towels
Vinegar

Can anyone help me find a way to launch my rocket without these items? Please?! I got this yesterday, and it is due Friday. Help would be apreciated! Thank you

Welll, I did end up finding a way for anyone who's interested...
Make a bottle rocket, and make a chamber for the egg, make a suspension system (or way to protect the egg), and to launch it, make a stand for the rocket, fill the bottle 1/3 full w/water, and put a cork in. Then take a needle (like to pump air into a soccer ball), stick it into the cork, and PUMP until it shoots off. There you go!
