I think Tkinter will be the best for your needs...
Its totally cross platform (I believe it works anywhere python does)
and its the python default GUI toolkit (no additional modules needed).
Its downside is that it don't got any fancy widgets, but you don't
need them for a science program anyway.

Good luck !!

day they start making vacuum cleaners.
2. Unix is user friendly - it's just picky about it's friends.
3. Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good.
And when it is bad, it is better than nothing. - Dick Brandon
