Ivanka Trump uploaded a photo of herself on Instagram dressed like a scientist.

She visited Iowa, where she talked about President Donald Trump’s infrastructural spending proposal, part of which includes funding federal job training programmes.

Ivanka visited a school district in Waukee, where she took part in some experiments, Business Insider reports.

She said:

This is so amazing. This is such a cool place to come. It’s going to be hard to get rid of us.

And then, she donned a white coat, latex gloves and safety goggles, and proceeded to test the nicotine contents of “vape juice”.

Here’s the photo:

And here are the memes that followed on swift wings:

Some were more tongue-in-cheek than others.

Some actual scientists took offence to her "cosplay".

And it got a little awkward.
