AbstractThe chain reaction situation means the whole process that related scientific components conduct successive interesting
actions. The study mainly focuses on the developments for game-based scenario design of chain reaction situations and is carried out
with 7 groups (totally 16 participants) to conduct brainstorming method. The learning content includes the instructional materials of
natural science & living technology domain of elementary school. The scenario themes include four categories as "Risk Precaution",
"Obstacle Eliminations", "Situation Balances", and "Confident Challenges". The study result is expected to guide learners in the
scenarios of game-based chain reaction to enhance the exploratory motivations and learning enjoyments.
