The Center for Frontier Science(CFS) administrates the Frontier Science Program(FSP), which is open to gifted students permitted to enter Chiba University after skipping their final year of high school. The policy of CFS is to encourage talented students to become scientists in natural sciences, especially physics, applied physics, physical chemistry and human-related information science. Since we believe that some special measures are needed for this purpose, special seminars for the above four fields are delivered to the CFS students in order to stimulate their interest. Beside these seminars, some liberal arts seminars are also arranged. CFS also has strong links with high school teachers, and exchanges opinions with them on education systems for young people. This is not only to seek better educational methods in FSP, but also to prevent young people from losing their interest in science, which we think is a large problem in the Japanese educational system.
