Danica McKeller’s Journey From Child Actress To Mathematician [Video]


If you’ve been following Danica McKeller on social media, you likely know that Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years has spent recent years focusing on mathematics and inspiring young women to pursue careers in STEM fields.

McKeller graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a degree in mathematics, has written several math books for girls and still has time to be both a mom and a working actress.

The following clip from NOVA’s series The Secret Life Of Scientists & Engineers takes a look at her journey and serves as a reminder that child stars don’t all end up like Lindsay Lohan.
