The original SICP used MIT/Scheme, a fantastic language. Racket is a continuation of the ideas of MIT/Scheme with more focus on technical computing and a heavy focus on langdev and PLT theory.

Not to make the language seem daunting, it's really quite easy to pick up, maybe if you find yourself with a few spare weekends you should give it a try!

It comes with a builtin IDE and profiler and everything else, so you just gotta dig in and learn.
