Nueva's emphasis on hands-on and project-based learning dictates students have easy access to equipment. Such resources are available for checkout in the Library to support their work. The Library has the following collection of audio, visual, and peripheral equipment to support and document creative and intellectual student work:

  • Digital cameras
  • Digital video cameras
  • Flip video cameras
  • LCD projectors
  • Portable speakers
  • Portable projection screens
  • Tripods and GorillaPods
  • Microphones, card readers, chargers, cables, USB flash drives, SD cards
  • About twelve desktops available to the community in the Library and the I-Lab

In addition to these resources, the school provides technology-rich environments, including a Media Lab, the I-Lab, and three dedicated science classrooms. The labs are also accessible on select days for lunch/recess. A high-end laser cutter and two three-dimensional printers are available in the I-Lab to help students turn their digital creations into tangible items.
