Series by Matthew McElligott. New York, NY: Crown Books. 2015.
The Mad Scientist Academy students are diverse (a werewolf, robot, humans, and other odd creatures) and their teacher, Dr. Cosmic is brilliant, bumbling, and endearing as his classes promise some wild adventures learning about dinosaurs, weather, and astronomy (so far).
In this first adventure students are led through an "interactive" prehistoric exhibit as they follow clues to solve a dinosaur puzzle. It can be used in science for: science as inquiry; physical science; science and technology; and science in personal and social perspectives.
