Starborn Academy is a nine-week virtual reality astronaut experience program for students aged 13 to 18.

Following a successful demonstration of the Starborn Academy on December 6th, 2023 at the Young Space Explorers Conference hosted by the New South Wales school district, which serves over 1 million students, the Starborn Academy demo was ranked at 4.2 out of 5 stars by students. This initiative builds on Uplift Aerospace's experience in both virtual and in-person astronaut training, including the preparation of their first commercial astronaut, who will be flying to space on an upcoming Blue Origin New Shepard mission. Under a Memorandum of Understanding, Uplift Aerospace and Fizzics Education will extend the Starborn Academy Program throughout Australia, combining engaging virtual training with hands-on outreach and logistics supported by Fizzics Education.
