[OSCTC-planning] new curriculum page for event websites, and curriculum browser

I've been working to get more of our curriculum online, and part of that
has been creating a couple of meta-tools for viewing that curriculum.

I would love to hear feedback on the aesthetics, usability, and content of
these sites.  If you click through to specific activities -- which I
encourage you to do! -- you may find some of them in an unpolished state.
 But there's a rough draft of everything linked to.  And a self-guided
version of all standard events. Yay!

Feedback can be given here, informally, or on the tracker, more formally --
whatever you prefer:

Tool #1: Curriculum Pages for Event Websites

I've created a template that we can use at each event to help students view
and follow along with the day's curriculum.  You can view a sample version

Tool #2:  Curriculum Browser

I've also created a tool that lets organizers sort through our available
curriculum to see what we offer.  It's not clear how helpful it will be --
most events run the template curriculum, although repeating schools might
be more interesting in switching things up.  That said, it was not much
work to create this, so I did.  :)

Note that by clicking the "View Only Activities "In Construction"" control,
you can easily see what we need help with.

I was thinking of adding a category of activities which are, basically,
activities/lessons designed by other groups that we'd be happy to have our
mentors run if they feel up to it. But I'm not sure if that's in scope for
this page.
