[An animation image appears of a female sitting at a desk thinking and text questions appear one after the other: What do you want to be when you grow up? What problem do you want to solve?]

Narrator: What do you want to be when you grow up? 

[Animation image changes to show the female moving to the left and then a physio working on a person’s shoulders on a physio bed appears on the right]

Maybe a better question is, “What problem do you want to solve?”, because in our fast changing future careers will evolve constantly. Look at Amy, she wants to help people walk again.

[Animation image moves to the left and a new animation image appears on the right showing a male walking between parallel bars while the physio follows him]

So, Amy starts her career as a physio using her hands to help people walk better. 

[Animation images move through to show the word “Technology”, a moving arm with sensors attached, and the physio looking at a laptop and watching a male with sensors attached walking]

But then, fancy new sensors get invented, so Amy masters this new computer system to help people walk even better.

[Animation image changes to show the physio thinking and text appears above: But what about people with lost limbs?]

But what about people who’ve lost limbs? Can Amy help them walk again? 

[Animation images move through to show the word “Technology, and a computer screen showing a bone and text appears: Next generation 3D printers]

Ta da, new 3-D printer technology comes along 

[Animation image changes to show a university student reading a Product Design book and then the animation image moves left and a new image appears of the physio looking at a 3-D printed foot]

and so Amy studies design and uses these new printers to invent a foot that changes the world.

[Animation image changes to show a person on crutches, a physio holding a gold cup and a female clapping the physio on the back and the camera zooms in on the physio and text appears: But what about quadriplegics?]

But what about quadriplegics? 

[Animation image changes to show the word “Technology”, and then the image changes to show a figure with sensors attached and text appears beneath: Next robotic exoskeletons]

Amy still can’t help them until new robotic exo-skeletons might help people walk again. 

[Animation images move through of a university student reading a book, two females talking next to a diagram of a human with sensors attached, and a person standing up from a wheelchair]

So, Amy retrains and joins a robotics team that helps the first quadriplegic ever to walk unassisted.

[Music plays and cheering can be heard and the animation image shows a physio standing next to the person standing up from the wheelchair being given a gold cup while two other people watch]

See, as technology evolves so does Amy’s career. 

[Images move to the right and a new image appears of the physio walking between the parallel bars past inset images of a 3-D printed bone, a 3-D printed foot, and a figure with sensors attached]

Now she’s helping more people than ever to walk again in ways she never thought possible 

[Animation image changes to show the physio looking up]

because she was ready for a digital career.
