Wood Group Management Services, in collaboration with the Houston Symphony and Katy ISD’s Partners in Education, has provided funding for each Katy ISD campus to receive a free educational CD-ROM and DVD copy of “The Planets-An HD Odyssey” produced by the Houston Symphony.

The DVD features Gustav Holt’s famous orchestral suite “The Planets” performed by the Houston Symphony accompanied by state-of-the-art, high-definition images returned from space.  Cross-curriculum lesson plans for grades 1 through 12 are also included.  Subject areas include science, history, mythology, music history and language arts.

Thanks to Wood Group’s support, Katy ISD is the first district in the Houston Area to receive the highly valued CD-ROM set, and is currently the only district to receive one for every campus.
