Ivanka Trump, senior adviser and daughter to President Trump, joined Apple CEO Tim Cook in a visit to an Idaho school district Tuesday to see how it was integrating technology into education.

Apple has donated iPads to students and Macs to teachers in schools in the Wilder District.

The stop was one of many in Trump’s tour as part of her work with the National Council for the American Worker.

She tweeted about the visit earlier Tuesday, highlighting how Apple’s donations were part of an effort to encourage education in schools oriented toward improving the workforce.{mosads}

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters noted that in July that Apple signed the administration’s Pledge to America’s Workers, “committing to train an additional 10,000 people as part of their ongoing initiatives with community colleges in the U.S.”

“This visit reaffirms the Administration’s commitment to STEM and CS education as a pathway to ensuring our future workforce is equipped with the skills and knowledge required to succeed in our increasingly digital economy,” she added.

Apple did not immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment on the visit.
