I would recommend:

PyOpenGL:  for OpenGL scripting
           requires that you know or are willing to learn OpenGL.

VPython:   for easy visualization of physical systems.  Very cool.  Looks good
           for beginners.
           (link seems to not be working at the moment. check google)

You might also want to look at pygame (http://pygame.seul.org) for
producing multimedia animations.  For really heavy duty visualization,
there's also the visualization toolkit (VTK at
http://www.kitware.com/vtk.html) and IBM's Open Data Explorer (OpenDx at
http://www.opendx.org), both of which have python bindings.
