I looked into it, and at present it doesn't seem to be possible:

"Currently, Google App Engine allows you to write your applications  
with Python 2.5. For security reasons, some Python modules written in  
C are disabled in our system. Also, since Google App Engine doesn't  
support writing to disk, some libraries that support this and other  
functionalities are only partially enabled."

If you can't get C code running (so no NumPy anyway), good luck with  
Fortran (which SciPy depends pretty heavily on).
