Samuel Walton, 16, has been named the MirrorSphere Future Tech Star 2016 after impressing judges with his passion for technology.

The Wheatley Park School student is an Air Cadet who designed a system which allows cadets to work together using flight simulators.

Sam was chosen to be our MirrorSphere Future Tech Star for 2016 from hundreds of entrants who were eventually whittled down to five finalists before the winner was selected. Along with the prestige of being the MirrorSphere Future Tech Star, Sam also wins this bundle of prizes worth £1,500!

Everyone at MirrorSphere wishes Sam the best of luck in his ambitions and future career … we are sure this won’t be last we see of him!

Sam’s passion for technology stood out, and the fact that he is using it for such a great cause made him shine. He truly deserved to win the title.

It is hugely important to us that young people are given the praise and recognition they deserve. We are thrilled to award Sam this prize for all his hard work and talent and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.Managing Director Spencer Dauphin
