Apple CEO Tim Cook and Ivanka Trump, adviser to President Donald Trump, are visiting Idaho’s Wilder School District together today to examine the district’s use of technology in education, according to the Idaho Statesman.
The visit is part of Ivanka Trump’s ongoing workforce development and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education initiatives. Last year, the Trump administration reached out to Cook and other major technology, business, and education leaders for advice regarding STEM education in public schools.
In 2016, Apple donated an iPad to every student, a Mac and iPad to every teacher, and an Apple TV to every classroom in the Wilder School District through its ConnectED initiative. Since 2014, Apple has pledged $100 million in technology solutions to 114 low-income or underserved schools across the United States.
