How would you launch the rocket using the Schrader valve?

i'm not sure i understand the question, are you asking how to connect the valve to the tube?
it's not about the medals; go out there and have fun. make progress, learn a few things and have one heck of a time; that's all that matters.

Firmly attach the neck of your bottle all the way into the valve so no air is leaking out (quiet hissing sound). Lock the bottle, pump air into it to what pressure you want, then release the locking mechanism.

hmm well, it is inteded for use with water, maybe that has something to do with it? maybe also try checking the release mechanism and see if anything is loose
