There are three wide-field telescopes at the Bisei Spaceguard Center operated by the Japan Spaceguard Association. These telescopes are dedicated to detect near-earth asteroids and produce several tera-byte data per month. Since these data contain many main-belt asteroids, we will use them for an education program that will allow school pupils and the general public to find new main-belt asteroids. We are now developing a new software for its purpose.
