Today’s toddler will be tomorrow’s body-part maker

New research reveals what kind of careers our toddlers will have when they grow up


The kinds of jobs your baby or toddler will have when they grow up have been revealed in new Government-commissioned research.


In 2030, your child could be a body-part maker, which is one of the most popular professions predicted, reports the Daily Mail. So what does a body-part maker do? They’ll be making replacements for unhealthy or damaged body parts, based on the developments in stem cell technology and prosthetics.

Other career paths include:

  • Memory augmentation surgeons (they’ll help you boost your brain’s storage capacity)
  • Space architects (someone’s gotta design those buildings on the moon and in outer space!)
  • Personal branders (they’ll assist you in looking more interesting on the 2030 equivalent of Facebook, Twitter, Bebo or whatever your preferred social networking site is)
  • Social ‘networking’ workers (like social workers, but they’ll help when you’ve been traumatised by your computer obsession)
  • Virtual clutter organisers (organising our electronic lives)
  • Anything related to space tourism (think space pilots and space tour guides)
  • Climate change reversal specialists (does what it says on the tin)
  • Weather modification police (they’ll keep new scientific advances that let us trigger rainfall in order)
  • ‘New science’ ethicists (to ensure developments in science are kept in check)
  • Narrow-caster (a broadcaster tailoring the TV streamed into your home from all the available channels, of which there’ll be hundreds)
  • Quarantine enforces (they’ll prevent the spread of diseases. Not the most coveted job by any means!)
  • Waste data handlers (well, someone’s going to have to prevent those cyber-criminals from tracking us down)

Fields your tot could train in include virtual law, nano-medicine and vertical farming. And yes, that last one does mean farming upwards!


The research is part of the Government’s campaign to encourage interest in science.
